The Centre for Progressive Capitalism’s research aims to improve access finance to enable businesses to innovate and grow.

The research is focused on three key areas:

  • A more effective model of public support for venture capital: making venture capital profitable through support for mixed modes of debt and equity financing, such as the US’ Small Business Investment Scheme.
  • Promoting business angel investing across the EU: including support for tax incentives to encourage greater investment in riskier businesses.
  • Signposting businesses to the most appropriate finance: developing compulsory referral schemes for loan applications rejected by banks.
