Growth Capital Update – a review of 2019
812 businesses raised £3.42 billion of growth equity capital in 2019 (2018: £3.58 billion across 923 investments). British businesses are therefore securing larger sums of investment than in 2018 as average deal size rose from £3.88 million in 2018 to £4.23 million in 2019.
“It’s a good time to be an ambitious company seeking backing,” says John Cowie, Head of Growth Capital. “The might of growing British businesses has been proven over the last few years, with a growing number of unicorns piquing the interest of investors, who are investing larger sums of capital into promising companies. We expect this to continue as the venture capitalists continue to raise funds.”
