About Finance Yorkshire

Finance Yorkshire is not accepting new applications for investment at this time.

At the start of 2017, Finance Yorkshire received funds from the Sheffield and Leeds City Regions to invest until the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) was operational. NPIF was launched in February 2017. Please click here for details

Finance Yorkshire provides seedcorn, loan and equity linked investments, specifically to help small and medium sized businesses meet the gaps in the market for the funding they need for growth and development.

Finance Yorkshire has been developed as a European JEREMIE*  initiative and is capitalised by grants from UK Government,  European Regional Development Fund and finance from the European Investment Bank.   (*JEREMIE stands for Joint European Resources for Micro to medium Enterprises)

Finance Yorkshire is supported by the Regional Growth Fund (RGF). The RGF has supported eligible projects and programmes raising private sector investment to create economic growth and lasting employment. It has invested £2.7 billion to help businesses in England to grow; and is expected to create or safeguard over 557,000 jobs by the mid 2020s.

Finance Yorkshire invests in businesses based or moving to areas within Yorkshire.

Funds Available

The Fund provides three main products, structured to back businesses through critical stages of growth:

Almost all sectors are eligible (some restrictions apply) and we will look at capital expenditure, working capital, start-ups and expansions.

Finance Yorkshire often works alongside other finance providers such as banks, and other lenders and can help put together a finance package to meet your needs.
