Growth Capital Ventures and Maven Capital Partners have joined forces to launch a series of pitch events for local entrepreneurs.

Our first event is open for registration to North East businesses looking for support and funding to grow - join us on the 28th November at the Xcel Centre, Newton Aycliffe, for a roundtable pitch event.

New Call-to-action

Helping local entrepreneurs grow

At the event, you’ll have 60 seconds to pitch your business to our local investment team alongside other like minded entrepreneurs looking for support to grow.

Growth Capital Ventures and Maven Capital Partners (one of the UK’s leading private equity houses and manager of the £20m Finance Durham Fund) are teaming up to support North East businesses seeking finance to grow.

Many years’ experience tells us that investment is a shared journey, where results are most successful when all parties have a common vision for driving the business forward and maximising value.

Our aim is to give local entrepreneurs a platform for the continued growth of your business, and equip you with the right knowledge and know how to take your next steps towards growth.

Join us for a morning of pitching, support and networking

We’ll be on hand to provide strategic and commercial expertise to better your business, refine your pitch and give you the necessary guidance to take the next steps in your exciting growth plans.
