Fourth British Design Fund opens
According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor the number of people in the UK running a new business last year reached the highest level since the late 1990s.
12.6% of UK adults were in their first three months of running a new business or were already running a young enterprise in 2021. That’s the highest figure since the study was first conducted in 1999 and a significant increase on the 7.8% recorded in 2020, at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
We feel that launching our fourth British Design Fund, BDF4, could not be more timely. BDF4 will invest in at least ten early stage purpose-led product design and manufacturing businesses. In addition, our mentoring programme means that we can help these entrepreneurs tackle the big challenges and overcome the barriers which might otherwise jeopardise their success.
Have a look at our portfolio to see the spread of companies which we have invested in to date.
