As the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) celebrates backing £100m of investment across the Northern Powerhouse region, we look back at some of the businesses that are achieving their ambitious growth plans with its support.
Lancashire-based Inleaf secured a £150,000 boost from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, a product fund managed by FW Capital.
The company, which supplies plants to businesses across the North West, was set up three years ago by husband-and-wife team Charlotte and Daniel Atherton and will use the funding to expand following increased demand for its products.
Daniel Atherton, director at Inleaf, said: "The business has grown quite significantly since we started and with Christmas coming we've also had lots of requests for festive installations so it was crucial that we were able to cope with the increased demand."
If your business is located in the North of England and you are looking to start up, scale up or stay ahead, visit NPIF's website to see how we can help.
