Venture Capital/Private Equity/Bank-backed Organisations

An ideal time to make contact with an organisation is when it is in receipt of significant amounts of new funding from an external source. From a business perspective, this often reflects a desire to change, grow, improve products and services, step up sales and marketing, recruit new staff and acquire new premises – and the funding itself is a form of 'stamp of approval' from the VC/PE or banking organisation.

A unique set of opportunities

These funding situations are green lights for a broad range of suppliers: recruiters, property experts, consultants, B2B providers, financial service firms, and many more. Firms receiving funding have a tendency to purchase with greater urgency and in greater volume and diversity than their peers. They often need different types of services, goods, and people to help achieve their objectives – OFFERING FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU.

An added bonus is that incumbent suppliers are often unaware of the changing circumstances within their clients that are presenting these new opportunities. You can take advantage!

Pinpointing these firms among the UK's 2.5 million active businesses can be difficult and frustrating, but not when you have Alert Business Insight's services to hand. We have developed two services specifically for this purpose:

The lending statistics

The VC* / PE** industry invests between £5billion and £10billion annually into UK headquartered firms. Approximately 3,000 firms employing over 400,000 staff are currently in receipt of this type of support, with about 1,000 new additions annually. The major banks (Barclays, HSBC, LBG, RBS and Santander) and alternative finance sources such as crowd-funders, provide about £200 billion of lending to tens of thousands of UK headquartered businesses annually. This is split approximately 50:50 between big business and SME's (small to medium sized enterprises).

*What is Venture Capital Funding?

Venture capital (VC) is a type of investment for early-stage, innovative businesses with significant growth potential. Venture capital provides finance and sometimes operational expertise for entrepreneurs and start-up companies. Typical sectors in receipt of this financing include those with a technology/scientific base, but also others across the whole spectrum of business.

The main difference between the two types is the age of the company receiving the support.

**What is Private Equity Funding?

Private equity is medium- to-long-term finance provided in exchange for an equity stake in potentially high-growth unquoted firms. Private equity investments typically support management buy-outs and management buy-ins within mature companies.
