NEL Help Businesses get ‘Investment Ready’
Regional firm NEL Fund Managers is partnering with the If We Can You Can challenge to help North East businesses prepare for investment.
The fund management firm, based in Gateshead, has teamed up with If You Can We Can as the challenge enters its 11th year of supporting North East startups.
Dr Yvonne Gale, chief executive at NEL Fund Managers, explained: “We already work closely with potential investees to ensure their business plans and structures are in the best possible shape.
“Working with the If You Can We Can Challenge team means we can share this intelligence directly with even more individuals and businesses…to ensure these entrepreneurs are ‘pitch ready’ when the time comes.”
The partnership will see both organisations holding events throughout the year, providing support and advice for entrepreneurs seeking capital to grow their businesses.
Zoe Maylam, events manager at If You Can We Can, added: “Our work with NEL will help our participants build a better understanding of how the business investment process works, what’s available on the market at the moment, the benefits they can accrue from accessing this capital and the difference it can make to the speed at which they grow.”
