Beer & Young: Best SME Growth Capital Solutions UK 2022

Beer and Young

Beer & Young (B&Y) has found its niche as a corporate finance boutique in the UK, where SMEs account for 99.9 percent of the business population. The firm is driven by a multidisciplinary team of entrepreneurs, accountants, bankers and investors dedicated to helping UK businesses fuel growth and overcome challenges. Founded in 1998, the firm connects entrepreneurs to a network of active investors and private equity funds looking for good business opportunities. The B&Y team can be reached round-clock by mobile phone and stays in close contact with clients and investors to create win-win solutions that match funding needs with capital providers. B&Y investors contribute more than just capital in a crunch; they bring the business know-how and contacts that can propel an SME to the next level. The firm targets SMEs with up to £50m in turnover and fewer than 100 employees. Funding ranges from £250,000 and £25m in equity or debt. Over the past eight years, B&Y has helped cash-constrained SMEs raise growth capital and urgent funding to the tune of £34m in equity and £43m in debt. B&Y has seen an uptick in business from quality companies struggling with cash pressures and working capital woes. It races to secure funding in turnaround situations when the timing is most critical, often raising capital within two to six weeks. The judging panel announces Beer & Young as the 2022 award winner for Best SME Growth Capital Solutions (UK).
