Growing successful businesses
Providing funding packages tailored to the growth needs of your business in the North East of England
Development capital tailored to your business growth needs
As small businesses grow, large injections of funding are often needed to move them to the next level.
A simple alternative to bank finance, NEDCF can support established businesses via debt finance, mezzanine loans or equity investment.
The Fund targets dynamic businesses based in the North East with strong management teams and ambitious growth plans.
NEDCF is designed for small businesses that need funding to grow their business. Funding is available from £400,000 to £2 million.
To be eligible for NEDCF Finance a business must:
- Have a material part of its operations in the North East
- Have fewer than 250 full-time employees
- Operate in an eligible sector
- Will be required to meet a number of funding criteria, including job creation and a contribution to economic development.
In order to appraise a funding application Maven would expect to receive a range of information, some of which will be readily available and some of which the Maven team will work with you to build.
