Mercia Asset Management traces its roots to West Midlands Enterprise, a regionally-based venture capital provider in the early 1980s working with Birmingham and Warwick universities.

Today, Mercia is a quoted company with 19 university partnerships, regional funds in the North and Midlands, and tax-advantaged funds to connect investors with growing companies. Frontier Development Capital is part of the group and offers debt finance from offices in Birmingham, Manchester and Bristol.

Mercia has always kept its regional focus and aims to be the first-choice provider of capital for businesses that are seeking up to £10 million. Mercia offers a full programme of events and ‘meet the funder’ opportunities for founders wanting to explore their finance options.
