H arbert European Growth Capital provides specialty debt financing — typically from €1–20 million — to high-growth businesses with proven management teams, in need of capital to fuel organic growth, acquisitions, equipment purchases, bridge loans and various forms of recapitalization. We provide not only the essential financing, but also a calibre of resources and support that can help push companies to the global stage — from our worldwide network of contacts to our annual Portfolio Day, when we present our firms for consideration to the London Market.   “Entrepreneurs appreciate our institutional nature,” Bateman continues, “in the sense that when we offer them term sheets, they know they can trust those terms. At the same time, they appreciate our streamlined processes — which make us significantly easier to work with than traditional banks.” “One of the most notable markers of our track record and our reputation as an attractive growth partner,” he concludes, “is the fact that we repeat lend to more than half of the companies we serve. SELECTED PORTFOLIO INVESTMENTS Not only are we capable of scaling with our companies as long as they need us, we take genuine pride in how consistently we have successfully supported and advanced their goals — and their dreams.” “Our team’s continued success is proof of a core assumption we built and launched our strategy on: The European technology community is woefully under-appreciated in comparison to its counterparts in the United States and Asia, as are its life sciences and environmental sectors,” says Managing Director David Bateman.
