What do we do?
We are Investors, Advisors, Practitioners and Facilitators
We are fascinated by the entrepreneurial vibrancy within the Digital Economy and by the emergence in the UK of alternative funding sources in the absence of traditional bank lending. Due to their size and scale, the high growth small business segment has had insufficient access to professional financial advice and practical hands-on business management experience.
Yet this market segment is a priority for the government given that, according to a report by Octopus Investments, some 20% of economic growth in the UK (measured as increase in GVA) was produced by high growth small businesses. And the tax efficient investment schemes such as EIS and VCT have proven highly successful in channeling capital into this segment.
For Founders and CEOs – we love to meet new people and hear their ideas. We enjoy analysing their businesses and stress-testing their models. We challenge the status quo and we challenge ourselves, whilst applying Bosham’s strict investment criteria. We help Business Founders achieve their ambitions and we endeavour to help them to exceed those dreams. Ultimately we like nothing more than working with really smart people that have buckets of passion and a commitment to building world class businesses.
BCA provides a number of advisory services delivered by the Partners and our Executives, together with specialists with whom we have developed long-term partnerships. These include Legal, Tax Planning, Financial Modelling and Management, Accounting, Investor Relations, Business Development, Sales, Marketing and Public Relations.
For Investors – we like to work alongside supportive and dynamic Investors who understand the challenges involved in growing businesses. BCA and our partners have access to Investment Capital through our own network of Investors right across the spectrum from Angels to Venture Capital, Private Equity, High Net Worth Individuals, Family Offices, Corporate Venture arms and Private Banks. We have access to pools of capital in both Asia and the UK and we seek constantly to match the right Investor to the right investment opportunity.
We also aim to maintain an ongoing advisory role with the Investee Companies wherever possible.
