Manchester and the Northwest region has many
venture capital providers who may have capital available for business
start-up, management buy-outs, and other forms of business investment
and funding. Venture capitalists are speculative companies who are prepared
to take the risk of financially backing new commercial ventures and who
invest directly in companies for an equity stake and usually a seat on
the company’s board.
