NPIF has a particular interest in supporting equity investments and helping to build a vibrant and sustainable venture capital community in the North.
An equity based investment could be right for you if you are looking to grow at a rate that cannot be supported through borrowing, which will tend to be linked to the ability to service debit from existing cash flows. This can apply at any stage of a company’s growth cycle from start up to scale up.
