Venture funding is widely accepted as an important ingredient for innovative and fast growth businesses at all stages.
The North East Venture Fund (NEVF) can invest up to £1.0million at any stage in the business life cycle, but is specifically looking for those firms which are engaged in innovation or developing disruptive business models.
Funding is available to all companies with high growth potential and also pre-start enterprises. The fund aims to provide a range of investment products, tailored to each specific requirement, including both equity and mezzanine debt. The fund can either act as the lead investor or participate in syndication deals with others.
