Damon Walford, CDO at ThinCats (pictured above), said: “Our mission is to level the playing field for British businesses whose growth ambitions are being held back by traditional lending models.”
With close to £1bn of capital to invest, ThinCats is seeing increasing demand from private equity-backed businesses.
Damon stated that the new funding programme would provide “valuable transparency” to support entrepreneurs with their growth plans.

“We welcome this news and will continue to work together to support the next generation of entrepreneurs.”
