How to find a co-investor
Before applying for investment from the Business Development Fund, you will need a co-investor. There are a number of different options available to you, to identify a co-investor.
Mentoring for Growth
Mentoring for Growth provides assistance for businesses that want to become investment-ready and actively seek external finance or capital.
The program can assist you with strategies for finding and securing a co-investor. This includes having the opportunity to present your investment attraction proposal and pitch your business case to a panel of mentors from the investment industry.
