Our fund managers offer guidance and support during the application process and further help after the loan or investment is made. We always aim to provide a speedy response to any enquiry.

The Coast to Capital Expansion Loan Scheme can provide up to £500,000 by way of a loan to established SME businesses requiring finance to implement expansion activities that will deliver substantial growth.
This Loan Scheme can be used to match the South East Sustainability Loan Fund (SESLF) operated by FSE C.I.C. Businesses interested in this opportunity of matched funding should initially check the Fund’s Terms and Conditions.
The Coast to Capital Trade Finance Loan Scheme can provide £50,000 to £200,000 loan funding to SME businesses with a short term trade funding requirement.
The Coast to Capital Growth Equity Fund invests in high growth small and medium sized businesses and can provide up to £200,000 as an equity investment. The investment must be matched by at least an equal amount of private investment, which the FSE Group can work with the company to source.
*SMEs must be based in the Coast to Capital area, which covers parts of Surrey and Sussex – see the Coast to Capital website for details.
