Fund description:

ECFs address a market weakness in the provision of equity finance to SMEs by using Government funding alongside private sector investment to establish funds that operate within the ‘equity gap’. An equity gap arises where businesses with viable investment propositions are unable to attract investment from informal investors or venture capitalists. In bridging this gap, ECFs aim to alleviate what would otherwise present a significant barrier to enterprise and to productivity growth. Contacting Individual ECFs
