Equity Funding

What is equity funding?

Equity finance is the issue of new shares in exchange for a cash investment. Your business receives the required capital, and the investor will own a share in your company. They will therefore benefit from the success of your business.

Investors can include Angel Investors and networks, Private Equity firms, and Venture Capitalists. They will recognise the long-term nature of their potential return on investment and will benefit from your business by receiving dividends upon their exit.

Equity finance can be a suitable route for businesses without the revenues or financial history to apply for a loan. In most cases you will have choose how to spend the investment to best benefit your business and its growth.

Key Considerations

Equity financing involves selling a stake of a business in exchange for a cash investment. Through this funding, an investor becomes a part-owner of the business and shares any profit made.

As such, they only secure a return on their investment if the business is successful, which means it is in an investors' interest to support the growth of the business.

This type of funding can come from a range of sources including Venture Capitalists, Private Equity funds or Angel Networks.
