Deals in focus - Lancashire

Back to Deals in focus

12th September 2019


Lancashire has an outstanding track record of commercialising great ideas and turning them into world-class products and services, and this is driven by the region’s ambitious and hungry SMEs.

However, for some of these firms getting access to finance can be a major barrier to growth.

That’s why an initiative like the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, which exists to support Lancashire businesses with investment when they need it, is great news for the county.

It’s already supported a wide range of firms across Lancashire, from tech companies to traditional manufacturers, helping every type of smaller business flourish and grow.

I would therefore encourage any SME with the passion and drive to succeed to see if the fund could help them, just as it has for some of the fantastic Lancashire businesses featured here.
