Last Thursday evening the KCFA held yet another successful evening at the Bridgewood Manor Hotel in Rochester, with guest speakers Marion Bernard, and Raf Goovaerts from the Business Growth Fund (BGF).

BGF launched in May 2011 and were funded by five of the largest UK banks with £2.5bn of committed capital. A national and independent organisation with a regional network of offices, the aims of BGF are to unlock the potential of UK businesses by providing long term capital to fast growing small and medium sized companies.

Since launch, and growth to six offices across the UK, BGF have completed six investments and have continued strong deal flow with further deals in exclusivity.

Their first investment of £4.2million was to Benfex, a Southampton based software provider. A small fast growing business, Benefex were expanding rapidly with 50% turnover year on year and a forecasted turnover of £10m for 2012. The CEO of Benefex, Matt Walker, discussed how BGF offered more than just money, and their advice, guidance and contacts were invaluable.
