Please note that this programme is about helping prospective fund managers to establish funds. If you are looking for equity funding, you will need to approach the fund managers directly through our scale-up pages accessible through the homepage.
Our ECF Guidance and Draft Partnership Agreement help applicants to understand more about the British Business Bank investment process and whether their plans fit with the programme or not.
Our team held a webinar for prospective fund managers in July 2020 explaining exactly how the programme works. Get in touch to request a copy of the recording and accompanying slides to watch at your convenience by emailing ECFTeam@british-business-bank.co.uk
