“When we first considered going out for private investment we were looking for more than just a cash injection, we were looking for someone with some business savvy, someone that had trodden the path that we were attempting to go down and someone that could help us grow and prosper by applying their experience and guidance.
It seemed a tall ask but this is exactly what we found when through this search we found Ian Townsend and Townsend Investments.
Ian and his team have not just brought financial resource; they have brought expertise and a wealth of business knowledge. In addition, Ian has also assisted in further fundraising initiatives and provided valued introductions to his network of high net worth individuals and organisations.
At the very start it was, without doubt, an apprehensive time, never having used any external investment we were obviously nervous about bringing in a third party, but we wanted to grow and we needed help to do this. The apprehension was swiftly dismissed as we quickly developed a mutual respect for each other, trust and friendship followed as we entered into business together.
The relationship we now have is testament to the fact that when working with Townsend Investments we are working with real people and a team that is driven by success; a team fuelled by a common sense and grounded approach to every need of the business.
In the current climate any business journey is a challenge, however we would much rather face that challenge with Ian and Townsend Investments on board than face it without them.”
