In May 2014 Winning Pitch attracted investment from Enterprise Ventures (now part of the Mercia Technologies PLC Group). Enterprise Ventures is one of the leading providers of finance for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and one of the few which is able to meet the needs of SMEs with turnovers of less than £10m providing both venture capital and loans.
Like Winning Pitch our investors are passionate about supporting small businesses and helping them to grow. They aim to improve the performance of the companies involved with and to optimise returns for all concerned – for investors, for the management and employees, as well as the communities in which they operate. Enterprise Ventures provides finance of up to £2 million for businesses in all sectors and at all stages of development – from funding for start-ups to investment for growth, fund a management buy-out or buy-in and replacement capital.
We are delighted to be part of their investment portfolio because of the synergy created between Winning Pitch’s coaching and strategy offering and Enterprise Ventures emphasis on supporting SME growth both in the public and private sector.
