Crestbridge sponsors roundtable at BVCA High Growth 2021

Crestbridge sponsors roundtable at BVCA High Growth 2021

Crestbridge is delighted to be a roundtable sponsor at the BVCA HighGrowth 2021 event.

The event, which is deemed to be the UK's leading event for growth companies partnering with venture and growth capital, will be taking place virtually for the first time and will feature entrepreneurs, management teams and investors as they share their thoughts and experience on what it takes to succeed in today's environment. 

A team from Crestbridge, comprising Alex Di Santo, Andrea Lennon, Daniela Klasen-Martin, Ross Thomson, Dominic De Mariveles, James Milner and Mark Collins will be attending the event on both the 8 and 9 June.

As a roundtable sponsor, Crestbridge will also be hosting an exclusive discussion session on 16 June that will explore private debt's best kept secret – venture debt. Venture debt is an innovative, but under-utilised asset class, especially in Britain, and, although it’s grown at a faster pace than the broader VC market, raising $47bn in 2021, there were just 16 venture debt providers in the UK and just 109 in the US, as at 2019 according to Preqin.

With the private lending space set to heat up over the coming months as founders look for alternative methods of financing, and investors look for alternative sources of yield, managers can serve both founders and investors through this under-utilised, innovative asset class.

During the roundtable, the panellists will discuss the specifics of this growth asset class, including the benefits and drawbacks of setting up and administering a venture debt fund.
