THE VC CATALYST SUPPORTS GROWING SMALL BUSINESSES IN THE UK BY INVESTING IN THE UK’S VENTURE AND GROWTH CAPITAL INFRASTRUCTURE
The VC Catalyst will focus on later stage funding, complementing the British Business Bank’s venture capital programmes – Enterprise Capital Funds and the Angel CoFund – which support earlier stage VC investments. The programme has already built a diverse portfolio covering early and growth stage businesses across digital, life sciences, energy and resource efficiency.
NEW! – The Chancellor of the Exchequer announced in his 20 June 2017 Mansion House speech that the VC Catalyst would be raising the limits on the amount it can invest in venture capital funds from 33% to 50%.
