As the economy improves and the opportunity to grow increases, more businesses are looking to venture capital to help provide the finance they need to expand.
For early stage and start-up companies in particular, where debt funding can be difficult to obtain, venture capital can be an excellent way to access additional finance, as well as draw on the expertise of people with a track record in helping companies to grow.
The availability of public/private venture capital funds across the North has helped to raise the profile of the sector and to make venture capital a more mainstream choice for companies raising funds.
However, businesses need to make sure they know what is involved in a venture capital investment in order to make it really work for them.
