Restaurant financing specialist Finance Kitchen is preparing to unveil an initiative aimed at angel investors wishing to get a toe in the hospitality sector.
The company plans to launch a service called ‘Dragons’ Kitchen’ for Enterprise Investment Scheme investors who want to indulge in the food and beverage market.
Finance Kitchen was founded by Ian Woodley, who also runs business recovery firm Now Financial Advisory. Finance Kitchen’s aim is to get behind promising London food entrepreneurs, including pop ups, start-ups and established businesses, and work with them to make sure they have the funding to grow.
The firm is well versed in SEIS and EIS investment, and is connected to each of the major banking groups and finance houses. It also has relations with the crowdfunding fraternity. The majority of cases it handles have either SEIS or EIS status.
