Mercia started its journey in 2007 with one office and seven university partnerships. In March 2016 Mercia then acquired Enterprise Ventures, which later became Mercia Fund Managers in October 2017.
Since the acquisition, the business has continued to scale. The Group now has eight offices across the Midlands, the North of England and Scotland, with almost 90 investment professionals and support staff who raise and invest debt, venture and growth capital into innovative SMEs across the UK regions.
