The Fund

Debt Finance from £100,000 to £2m

NPIF II – NEL Debt Finance Fund

As businesses grow, larger amounts of finance can be needed to move them to the next level. Funding might be for hiring a new team, launching a new product or service, funding marketing costs or purchasing new machinery or equipment. Debt finance is designed for companies that can demonstrate growth potential.

The NEL Debt Finance Fund is managed by NEL, whose local investment team are committed to strengthening the economy by accelerating the potential of ambitious businesses. We’ve helped hundreds of businesses achieve sustainable success over the years, and we’re actively looking to support yet more companies with strong management teams and robust plans for the future.
