Equity and equity-related investment from £500,000 up to £1.5million.

The Coalfields Funds were set up to support the growth of businesses in England’s former coalfields.

The £10.0million Coalfields Enterprise Fund, launched in 2004, was supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). The Coalfields Growth Fund, also £10.0million, was launched in 2009 with a further £5.0million from DCLG alongside £5.0million from the Enterprise Ventures Growth Fund.

The Fund is now fully invested and the remaining portfolio continues to mature with a number of investees performing strongly and reporting increased profitability.

The Funds have recently announced four exits: Barber of Sheffield, Woodall Nicholson, ChargePoint and Finch.
