Midlands Engine Investment Fund offers four different funding options to help your business grow, ranging from small business loans to fund start-ups, to later-stage equity investment that allows established businesses to continue growing.

Our funding options are informed by market assessments conducted in the Midlands which have identified common gaps in the provision of business finance.

The funding options respond to difficulties SMES in the Midlands have in obtaining debt finance as well as the observed differences in awareness and availability of equity finance.
