Capital Partners Ventures provides funding for growth companies in Europe.

Whether you are seeking start-up capital or expansion capital, Capital Partners Ventures (CPV), part of Capital Partners Group Ltd  (www.Capital-Partners.co.uk), is here to help.

Our Investment Process is divided into three main phases:

a) Filtering Process: We receive more than 100 business plans per month. In this first phase, our team select the most promising opportunities which have demonstrated their business and revenue model and which have strong growth potential.

b) Brokering Process: For those pre-filtered ventures, we put them in front of our busines angels platform (through our mailing list and events) and with partner investment firms. This process is conducted on a pure success fees basis with no upfront retainer (basically, we have to select ventures which are most likely to be backed by our business angel investors in order to achieve success fees).

c) Negotiations and Term Sheet Process: For those ventures selected and backed by our investors, the final stage will be focused on negotiation of the term sheets and completion.

In summary, there are 3 main reasons why entrepreneurs and firms select Capital Partners as their Venture Partner: our unrivalled Reach, our unique Life Cycle Support and our outstanding People.

1) Reach: Possibly the largest business angel network contact list in the UK

With our extensive contact list (in excess of 1,000 angel investors and one of the largest reach in the UK) ranging from our proprietary database of private investors through to venture capital companies, banking organisations and corporate venturers, we are well placed to source funding solutions to meet all your requirements. With a reach of a large number of active investors, we can source financing for proposals from 50,000 and above from UK and international sources.

In addition to our own proprietary business angel network, CPV has been also a Special Associate of the National Business Angels Network (NBAN, a DTI government backed initiative) and have key strategic alliances with other leading investment firms. Similarly, we have an open channel with several partner VC firms and other business angel networks to whom we refer our deal-flow for syndication and alternative funding purposes. CPV has now become one of the leading aggregators, which ensures that entrepreneurs will maximise the reach and funding potential through us. 

2) Life Cycle Support: The only firm providing assistance from incubation to exit strategy

Capital Partners Group CPG, (www.Capital-Partners.co.uk, the parent company of CPV), provides life cycle services which ranges from Incubation to Exit strategy.  This is unique in the marketplace as most competitors have presence (and skills) only in segments of the funding cycle but do not have capabilities to assist ventures through the entire life cycle (our long term approach). 

a)    (R&D Stage): CPG is a voting and founding member of an incubator focused on R&D and very early stage ventures.

b)    (Start-up Stage) Capital Partners Ventures: Provides business angel and pre-VC funding to entrepreneurs and firms (www.CapitalPartnersVentures.com).

c)     (Growth Stage) Capital Partners Europe Ltd: Provides VC services (MBO/MBI/LBO and VC funding) in Europe (www.CapitalPartnersEurope.com). 

d)    (Exit/Expansion Stage) Capital Partners Securities Ltd: This is a FSA regulated stockbroker as an Appointed Representative of First Equity Ltd (Securities.Capital-Partners.co.uk), which provides exit strategies (M&A, IPO, Private Placement) and other Capital Markets Services to our clients. 

3) Our People: One of the most experienced and best regarded teams in the UK

Our team of specialists and experts have extensive direct experience in the financing business all of whom have fulfilled senior roles in a number of leading Investment Banks and Venture Capital firms. We therefore have extensive experience in the detail of the fund raising process. Some of CPG's Directors have had leading positions (at Director and at Board of Directors level) with well known financial firms such as NM Rothschild & Sons, Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, Charterhouse Bank, Natwest Markets, Credit Suisse Group, Apax Partners, Seymour Pierce, Deutsche Bank, and others.

If needed, we also have access to a network of trusted partners providing extensive peripheral services such as business plan development, project implementation, board engineering, accountancy and legal affairs.

If you have experienced difficulty in sourcing finance from elsewhere, we are able to step in. It is through our extensive contacts and investor network that we can develop a new and tailor made approach.

So send us your synopsis today (a summary of your business plan initially - maximum 1 page) and make available a unique and valuable source of individually tailored financing solutions. If you do not have yet a well-structured and clear business plan, please let us know as we can provide you with assistance in this area. Please to send us your information to info@Capital-Partners.co.uk.
