Since 2001 the partners of Jenson Solutions have provided numerous companies with financial and operational support to help them grow and develop, with the aim of taking them from where they are today to where they want to be. Jenson provide high quality services such as portfolio and interim finance professionals, mergers and acquisitions advice, corporate finance advice, share option set up, share option valuations, IFRS conversions and accounting and financial modelling services to companies both large and small. A key focus of Jenson Solutions has been to support small businesses from start up through their life cycle. When the government announced their plans for the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (‘Seed EIS’), we saw an opportunity to work with Foresight to create a fund enabling us to support many of the businesses that we work with and would like to work with in the future.
