Raising Capital for Strategic Growth

Cavendish’s growth capital team has been designed to build upon the years of specialist mid-market sell-side advice its sector M&A banking team has provided to entrepreneurs, with the sole purpose of helping their companies scale operations to either dominate locally, or further into international markets. The team will advise companies that have witnessed the first stages of commercial traction after being venture backed and position them for rapid expansion through a mixture of advisory support and ultimately, access to a deep funding base of private growth investors. Similarly we will work with entrepreneurs that have grown impressively without any outside capital and are looking for a first institutional partner to help drive the business to the next level of growth.

The growth capital team works closely with sector specialist bankers and investor coverage groups to plan the right growth & fundraising strategy, mainly focused on raising primary growth capital to organically build revenues/profits, but can also include capital to fund acquisitive growth and/or provide liquidity to existing shareholders or early backers.  Cavendish has built strong relationships with a range of funding groups that can provide the flexibility of capital to achieve various strategic outcomes:

  • Late-Stage Venture Capital
  • Growth & Private Equity
  • Family Offices
  • Strategic Investors & Corporate VC’s
  • Credit Funds

We understand that the UK and Europe is in a golden-age of innovation, seeing it first hand through our conversations with the entrepreneurs we advise across a number of sectors. With the private capital now available and focused on Europe, we look to work with impressive entrepreneurs that want to make big differences in large markets and find the right investment partners who share that vision

Why funding doesn’t have to be a founder’s job

The head of a scaling, fast growth company wears many hats. Being the business’s corporate finance adviser doesn’t need to be one of them, explains Zuleika Salter, Co-Head of Private Growth Capital in this blog.
