We create new financing opportunities for smaller businesses by working with over 100 private sector partners.

We offer a range of solutions to help our partners finance more young and fast growing small companies in the UK.

We also have a commercial arm with separate governance and return targets, which can fund providers of finance to smaller businesses on a purely commercial basis.

The British Business Bank works with over 100 finance partners to unlock finance for smaller businesses. Find the right one to suit your needs.

The vast majority of our partners listed continue to make new loans and investments in businesses. The other partners we are still working with, but who are no longer making new investments from funds we support are: Catapult Ventures, Disruptive Capital Finance, the European Investment Fund, Hermes Investment Management, IQ Capital Partners, MMC Ventures and Seraphim Capital.

The process below selects our partners as they participate in our programmes – they may provide other finance independently from British Business Bank’s support programmes. As well as British Business Bank partners, there are many other alternatives in the market.
