Interested in becoming a ‘Dragon’?

Wallace Equity is looking for investors to help back Scottish start-ups and early growth businesses. The Stirling investment group want to double the number of existing investors of 25 so that more money is available to support Scottish businesses and entrepreneurs.

Start-ups and SME’s are feeling the pinch since funding is becoming increasingly low amongst new businesses. The network of current members back qualifying businesses across Scotland – with an investment ranging from £20k to £500k across many sectors. The aim is to increase investment by 60% as it recruits fellow investors. Much like Dragon’s Den, Wallace Equity members listen to pitches from pre-vetted businesses and ask questions to understand whether the company would be worth investing in.

Wallace Equity member and Kippen resident Gordon Bell said:

“Small businesses are the heart of Scotland’s economy. All the big companies we think about started small and needed capital to get where they are now. If we can help get a small Scottish business to where they need to go and make some money at the same time, it’s a win, win.”

This is an exciting opportunity to invest in some great businesses. To find out more email:
