SYIF Profile Spring 2007 Newsletter

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the latest edition of Profile.

In this e-newsletter we bring you the latest news on the Seedcorn Fund, which is a £4.6 million fund, aimed at early stage technology and knowledge-based businesses. If you think this fund could help your business, or a business you work with, please contact Jonathan Dixon, Deputy Chief Executive of SYIF on 01709 386392 or email jonathand@syif.com. Alternatively, for an application form, email application@syif.com

We also look at how SYIF can provide vital funding assistance for property purchase. Conditions do apply to the loans but full details can be obtained by ringing us on 01709 386377 or by emailing info@syif.com

We take a look at a handful of companies who have worked with SYIF to move their business to the next level. SYIF can provide loan and equity linked investments, ranging from £15k to £2.5m, specifically to help small and medium businesses meet the gaps in funding they need for growth and development. If you think we could help you, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

We do hope you enjoy reading this latest edition of Profile.
