New Anglia Capital
New Anglia Capital is a co-investment fund aiming to stimulate entrepreneurship across Norfolk and Suffolk, with £2million of funding from New Anglia LEP.
The fund brings businesses and “angel investors” together to kick-start new products and innovative ideas into thriving new businesses, as well as support existing high-growth companies.
Anglia Capital Group has been selected by New Anglia LEP as the investment facilitation partner to the co-investment fund: angel investors would invest 50% of the risk capital in the successful businesses, with New Anglia Capital providing the remaining 50%. The aim is to encourage economic development by job creation in early-stage businesses with high-potential in key sectors where there is strength in the region: e.g. engineering, life sciences, agri-tech, health, energy, communications and digital.
