The time needed varies from investment to investment, but we suggest around three to four weeks to prepare an investment paper, once the investment proposal has been approved for funding, and around two more weeks to complete the legal documentation. This can all happen more quickly if everything is well prepared and straightforward and it's important to consider that we are less likely to invest if our funding is needed to save the business.
INVESTING FOR THE FUTURE
LOOKING FOR INVESTMENT?
BWVC invests right across the UK and will consider outside the UK and is happy to consider investments in almost any sector. While the typical first-round investment tends to be in the region of £100k - £500k, BWVC actively participates in follow-on rounds so the overall investment in your company can be much higher.
BWVC understands that success usually takes time and is a patient capital investor, making conscious long-term investments to help companies reach their full potential and generate fuller returns. The size of our proposed investment needs to be significant enough to properly fund the business and to allow for the cost of proper due diligence and legal advice. Also, the investment needs to be a new investment for BWVC and one that ensures our mutual objectives are broadly aligned.
