Exit strategy lack could be stifling growth

Growth - Enterprise ventures considering implementing a two stage exit process - SantanderCB

Enterprise Ventures has called for more owner-mangers to consider implementing a two-stage exit process that would see a small stake sold initially, paving the way for a full sale later on. The company says too many entrepreneurs are denying their businesses the necessary investment to grow by clinging on to full ownership. Enterprise Ventures says it has found that 'where entrepreneurs can realise part of their investment, they often gain renewed appetite for growth'. Enterprise Ventures this month launched a new private capital loan fund with £40m of support from Santander and Greater Manchester Pension Fund.
