Scottish Enterprise can help you find out if equity investment is an appropriate source of finance for your company. This will include working with the Scottish Investment Bank to identify appropriate fund manager(s) for you to approach. Scottish Enterprise will also help you prepare your investment proposition and 'pitch'.
The fund manager will carry out due diligence and assessment of your investment proposition. Scottish Enterprise and the European Investment Fund will not be involved in any aspect of this assessment process.
All funding will be fully commercial. The fund manager will make all decisions on funding and will be responsible for managing the whole investment amount, including the Scottish Enterprise and the European Investment Fund's commitment.
