BFS Reaches Funding Landmark


Business Finance Solutions celebrated a major milestone this month, having achieved £150m loans advanced across its portfolio of alternative finance products to start-ups and growth businesses across GM and the wider UK, from Fintech and furniture companies to bike parks and breweries.

Since 2002, the BFS team, led by Paul Breen, has delivered finance across a range of products including Start Up Loans, business loans, the GM Export Fund, the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) and the Co Angel Investment service.

Paul Breen said: “Reaching this milestone really is testament to the hard work and dedication of the BFS team and of the partners we work with, both within The Growth Company and across the country.

"The benefit of our model can be seen in the success and growth of many of our clients and in their repeat rounds of funding with us as they continue to realise their ambitions and to put GM on the map, both in the UK and globally.”
