SFE is delighted to invite you to a lunch briefing with Stephen Welton, Chief Executive of the Business Growth Fund (BGF).

As CEO of BGF, Stephen Welton is responsible for the management and strategic direction of the company. Since its launch in 2011 and under Stephen’s leadership, BGF has grown to become the most active provider of growth capital for small and mid-sized companies in the UK. Earlier this year, BGF reached £100m in total capital invested in Scottish businesses between their Edinburgh and Aberdeen offices. This will be a valuable opportunity to hear from the Chief Executive on the work they are currently carrying out and their plans for the future.

Prior to BGF, Stephen was one of the founding partners of the global private equity firm CCMP (formerly JP Morgan Partners), and Managing Director of Barclays Private Equity and Henderson Ventures, which he co-founded.  In 2013 he was appointed as an Advisor to the UK government regarding the establishment of the British Business Bank. He has served as an independent director on a broad range of companies both in the UK and internationally during the past 25 years.
