Company Investments - Townsend Investments

Our Approach

“Townsend Investments typically invests development capital of between £100,000 and £1.5 million in unquoted UK companies with significant growth prospects.”

We provide funds by investing equity in start-up firms and small businesses with long-term growth potential. Our investment range is £100k to £1.5 million at initial funding with follow on finance available if required.

We work closely with company founders to shape the strategic direction of the companies we are invested in and can provide interim managerial assistance until such time as the business reaches a sufficient stage of maturity and has the resources to widen its leadership team.

The Townsend Investments team has extensive contacts in industry, government, legal and finance together with strong in-house expertise in building high growth businesses. In addition, Townsend Investments works with a wide network of co-investors that can provide further capital alongside our own investments.

Criteria for Investments

We do not have a specific sector focus but look for businesses with:

  • Committed management teams with a proven track record.
  • Ability to develop an innovative approach to market, proprietary technology or strong brand.
  • Scope to become a niche market leader.
  • Capacity to create a strategic value on exit.

Working on similar principles we also make investments in quoted equities on the UK stock market.
