Business owners (often, entrepreneurs) who look to raise finance through the investment market, be it through Private Equity, Venture Capital or otherwise, are increasingly turning to firms that themselves are entrepreneurial at their core. The choice of investment partner is hugely important for any business, at any stage of its growth. Often the chosen investor will be part of the company’s journey for several years, supporting the company as it evolves.
The funding landscape has evolved drastically over the past two decades and the choice of funder is often far more than a simple decision in who will offer the funds first. Business owners are now turning towards funders who are themselves entrepreneurs and so have experienced the risks, mentality, uncertainties and challenges of business ownership.
Gambit is proud to have held entrepreneurial principles at its core since inception. In addition to being a wholly partner-owned business, Gambit Partners and Directors sit on numerous company boards both regionally and nationally.
