The British Business Bank has launched the £200 million South West Investment Fund, aimed at fostering growth and prosperity for small businesses across the South West of England.

The South West Investment Fund (SWIF) will provide much-needed funding to small and medium-sized businesses across the whole region, covering Bristol, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset, and Wiltshire.

The fund will increase the supply and diversity of early-stage finance for new and growing smaller businesses for various purposes, such as expansion, product or service innovation, and new processes, skills or capital equipment. It will offer a range of commercial finance options with loans from £25,000 to £2 million and equity investment up to £5 million.
