BVCA recommends £500 million Government facility for digital, biotech and life-sciences startups

  • Short read

The British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA)  is proposing a bridge funding facility in the form of a convertible loan, a standard investment instrument, of up to £5 million per company, with Government funding supplemented by existing investors. Including money from the private sector, this would provide at least £625 million of capital to early stage businesses. 

The BVCA argues that it should be deployed rapidly into the market by the British Business Bank.
