Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF), Debt Finance – Meet The Fund Managers.
MEIF is an initiative launched by the government-owned British Business Bank.
It is a key part of the government’s vision aimed at boosting the region’s economy and supporting the growth of smaller businesses between 2017 and 2022.
The government firmly believes that SMEs form the foundation of the region’s future growth. MEIF therefore aims to nurture regional entrepreneurship by providing investment and support for small businesses between 2017 and 2022. MEIF’s funding will support new and growing SMEs, create jobs and encourage and attract additional private sector investment.
This seminar gives SME’s and intermediaries the opportunity to meet the Fund Managers appointed to deliver the first £120m tranche of the MEIF on the Small Business Loans and Debt Finance options. The Fund Managers are responsible for evaluating applications and allocating funds to businesses. Their work is complemented by dedicated MEIF staff who work with local business support providers in the LEP areas, including Growth Hubs.
