The Investor Directory

Trying to raise finance? Look no further than our A-Z investor directory covering venture capital funds, private equity, angel networks and more...

Raising business finance can be a daunting process which is why Growing Business has compiled an A-Z directory of the UK’s most active investment funds to help you on your funding path.

From venture capital (VC) firms to seed-stage investors, angel investor networks, and even social-enterprise funds, this guide offers a who’s-who of the finance landscape with information on what each fund looks for, how each fund operates and the amount of funding they could offer your business. Information on portfolio companies that each fund has backed have also been included, along with featured deals, to help you assess whether your business matches the investment criteria.

While we’ve made it our aim to include details on the prominent business investment funds, this list isn’t conclusive and will be regularly updated to reflect the UK’s investor community.

Type the investor category or investor name you’re looking for in the search box below or click on any of the table headings to sort A-Z or by fund size. Each fund name is clickable to a dedicated page where you’ll find more information, investment criteria, an example of a portfolio company and links to recent deals from the fund.
