ADVISING SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZED BUSINESSES
We’re Chance Capital and we’re here to help your business grow. Since our founding in 2014, we’ve raised over £100m for countless SME's, guiding them through the often dauting process of raising growth capital. We are focused on raising strategic £1-50m finance for early stage businesses, but also work with start-ups up to later stage private businesses, advising them on business development and growth strategy.
We have network of over 150 investors, who look at different sectors and stages of companies seeking finance. That said, for those companies seeking finance, we generally address the post seed, pre institutional gap in the market. If you fit the following criteria then we'd be delighted to hear from you:
• Min 3 years revenues (with 20%+ YOY growth)
• Min £3m turnover
• Ideally min £500K EBITDA/Asset value (or exponential growth if pre profit)
• Exceptional management team
• Raising £1m+ (up to £50m)
• Targeting SME's domiciled in Europe
• Sector agnostic
• SME’s seeking debt, equity (or CLN's)
• Preferably EIS compliant, but not a necessity
Helping Dutch Businesses Scale Into The UK
Chance Capital has recently launched a new arm of the business in The Netherlands, recognising the breadth of Dutch innovation looking to access the post-Brexit UK marketplace.
We have partnered with a number of strategic groups to offer Dutch businesses a full suite of services for those looking to scale and set up in the UK. Quite aside from raising finance, we work with Dutch businesses who require an advisor with 'boots on the ground' who can guide them through all the nuances of setting up and building a new arm of the business in the UK. The services we can help businesses with include (but are not limited to) the following:
