Established in 2004, Envestors comprises a team of like-minded individuals who have all been involved in either owning or investing in businesses. We are seasoned practitioners who know what it takes to start, manage, raise funding for, grow and sell businesses.
We know what investors like and don’t like: our expertise lies in determining how best to prepare, value and present a company for investment; and then raise finance from our three distinctive, yet complimentary investor groups.
Our track record in fund raising speaks for itself, as do the various industry awards that have been won. Rather than bask in reflected glory, we have instead produced a range of Tools and Tips for Entrepreneurs, which can be downloaded here.
About our investors
Our investor networks continue to grow, currently comprising a proprietary database of around 1,000 high net worth individuals; our own off-shore investor networks in Jersey, Harrogate, Monaco and Dubai; and 30 or so family offices and other specialist funds.
We know a great deal about the individual cheque writers and their investment interests and criteria. Much of our activity revolves around development capital, but there is also investor demand for quality MBO, MBI and pre-IPO opportunities.
Importantly, we are not investing a fund and everything that goes with it. Our investor clients (many of whom themselves are cashed-up entrepreneurs and therefore able to assist with wider business development in addition to providing funding) invest directly in the fund raising company, thus their interests are directly aligned.
As important, the timescales to which we work are kept very short: from engagement to payment of proceeds, is typically eight to ten weeks.
