Prepare and pitch for equity finance

Raise capital through the sale of new shares and unlock faster growth – it could pay dividends.

Let’s talk equity finance.

Equity finance involves selling a stake of your business in return for cash investment. Unlike loans, equity finance doesn’t require a repayment obligation.

Instead, investors buy shares in your company and make money through dividends (a share from the profits) or by selling those shares.

Growth Works offers equity finance options for eligible clients as an additional source of finance.
