Capital Partners Ventures provides funding
for growth companies
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).
Stage): CPG is a
voting and founding member of an incubator focused on R&D and
very early stage ventures.
Stage) Capital Partners Ventures:
Provides business angel and pre-VC funding to entrepreneurs and
Stage) Capital Partners Europe 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.
