We want to see all regions thrive
We partner with some of the most promising smaller companies to achieve their vision and create long-term sustainable growth.
With the right support, we know that smaller companies can have an enormous impact. Not only benefiting themselves but the areas in which they operate.
We partner with smaller companies to achieve their vision – providing guidance and support when needed – enabling them to create the high-quality, sustainable jobs that will power tomorrow's economy.
Our entrepreneurial team combines their cross-sector expertise, international reach and deep local connections. We’re uniquely positioned to enable smaller companies to maximise their potential, expand into new products and markets, adopt good governance and understand their impact.
For close to four decades, we’ve supported nearly 300 smaller companies through various economic cycles. Each year, we review nearly 2,000 business plans and our current portfolio, of more than 130 smaller companies, covers all sectors and stages.
We understand that not all businesses are unicorns and nor do they need to be. We adopt a realistic approach and listen to management teams – providing flexible funding and the opportunity for follow-on investment.
By partnering with Foresight, you’ll get insight and expertise you can use, guidance when you need it and access to a large network of established and like-minded business leaders. We’ll work together to achieve sustainable growth, not growth at all costs.

Mowgli Street Food
Year of investment: July 2017
Sector: Consumer & Leisure
Amount invested: £1.5m
Mowgli is an authentic Indian street food restaurant chain which offers healthy, light, and flavoursome dishes. This differentiates them from traditional Indian restaurants, as does its provision of an extensive gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan offering. Foresight's investment enabled the company to de-risk, but also ensure there was an opportunity for business growth. We also sourced and introduced Karen Jones as Mowgli's Chair, who previously founded Café Rouge and grew the business to over 100 sites.View full case study
