Boosting business growth in Lancashire

Just over two years on from the launch of the £102m Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF), and businesses across Lancashire are continuing to benefit from investment.

NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, managed by FW Capital, offers loans of £100,000 to £750,000 to businesses across the North of England, providing ambitious companies with the means to grow and create new jobs.

Businesses across a range of industries, ranging from traditional to digital sectors, have secured loans from us, including a packaging company in East Lancashire and a wholesale fish and seafood supplier based in Fleetwood.

FW Capital has also helped Preston-based Wireless Social, a provider of hospitality guest wifi and analytics, to accelerate its growth. Wireless Social works with some of the UK’s most recognisable hospitality brands including Carluccio’s, TGI Fridays and Leon, and this funding will allow the business to bolster its development resources and support innovation.

The NPIF is boosting SME growth across the North and we’d love to see more Lancashire businesses receiving finance so please get in touch if you’d like to find out more.

The team here at FW Capital works closely with Boost Business Lancashire and the Businesses Growth Hub, who can help SMEs prepare for investment.

The NPIF project is supported by the European Union using funding from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 and the European Investment Bank.
