Investment scene in Cumbria

By Maria Ramsdale

"I have recently joined FW Capital, who manage NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance with a focus in the North West, offering loans between £100,000 and £750,000 for business which sell to other businesses.

Our team’s aim is to make business finance options more accessible for companies across the region and complement the business support activity already in place to help businesses grow. Working alongside business advisers, banks, and other funders in the region, we have seen firsthand the great strength of the business community in Cumbria and have recently opened an office in the Cumbria LEP Conference Centre in Penrith to service the local community.

As a resident of Penrith for the last 23 years, I am really excited about working with ambitious local businesses to unlock the great potential in the region."

The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund project is supported financially by the European Union using funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 and the European Investment Bank.
