BGF provides active support at board level, and with access to a growing network of senior business leaders, including placing Chairman and NXDs on investee boards.
BGF’s growth capital helps companies to invest further in sales and marketing to build deeper customer relationships, giving them the ability to take on and fund new contracts. Increasing access to overseas markets via a network of suitably experienced non-execs, as well as the expertise within BGF and its portfolio companies, is helping to build export sales.
