Impact for scaleups
Investment outside London
Santander Breakthrough Growth Capital provides growth-stage capital through a mezzanine loan offer, typically between £500,000 to £5m, which can work alongside additional senior debt facilities. The funding targets companies that are growing at scaleup rates. The average size of its investment round into UK companies since 2013 is £3.98m. Current scaleups in its portfolio include Luminet, Aimes Grid Services and Aspinal of London.
A range of additional support is offered by the Breakthrough programme. This includes expertise to companies that are expanding internationally, providing commercial contacts and market knowledge to companies looking to export or open offices abroad.
