Start-up and early stage finance for risky businesses showing high potential for growth.
“In recent months, I have had the opportunity to take an equity stake and CEO position via the acquisition of a client. I acted as the lead-in investor and required additional funding to complete the acquisition. Some of this additional funding was found from within the client’s existing senior management team, and Pegasus obtained the additional £100,000 required via two investors from its Business Angel network. I recommend Pegasus.”
Bill Daubly, CEO - Prestige Car Servicing Ltd.
“One of my larger client companies, a manufacturing business, was about to deliver a sizeable order when the shipment was deferred by their customer for 3 months. As the goods had already been manufactured this left a sizeable hole in my client’s cash flow and would have made it difficult to pay suppliers. I contacted Pegasus Funding Resources and in less than 10 days Pegasus had arranged a new type of rolling loan that provides my client with the flexibility of only drawing down what they need, when they need it. Also an option to repay portions of the loan and to then draw down again as and when required has significantly reduced the interest charges applied to the loan. Thank you Pegasus!”

“Chrysalis VCT has recently invested in the telecoms infrastructure services company AerialCell. We are very excited about this opportunity to work with such a great team and to invest in a sector with such bright prospects. AerialCell were advised by Pegasus Funding Resources and their help in preparing the client contributed greatly to the project and its successful conclusion.”

“We were introduced to Pegasus Funding Resources by a consultant that we work closely with. We needed to raise some additional funds to finance our growth plans. Pegasus Funding Resources suggested that we should use Crowdfunding. They completed the application process for us and at 6 pm on a Thursday evening our application went live on their auction website and by 7:30 the same evening we were 100% funded and had raised £50,000. Thank you Pegasus.”
Mitesh Patel, MD - Fifosys Ltd.
“I approached Pegasus Funding Resources when one of my clients needed additional funding. Pegasus have over 650 different sources of funds available to them. We discussed the benefits of different types of funding and it was decided that Crowdfunding would be the best way forward. Pegasus made the application for us, the funds were raised and my client was not only happy but also impressed with the professionalism within our network.”
Peter Kroeger, MD - Kroeger & Co.
“I wrote my own business plan, although English is not my first language. I gave it to Pegasus Funding Resources, who were recommended to me by an Angel Network, for a quick look through. When they came back with their comments and a number of areas that needed to be worked on I realised that there were many sections of the plan that I needed help with. I took the option of their telephone coaching service to review the plan and put it into more readable English. Pegasus went out of their way to help me and were very approachable and understanding. I found this service very useful and it certainly answered all my questions and gave me a great deal of sensible, experienced advice. I would recommend this service to anyone.”
Angelo Cristofaro, MD - Houselab Ltd.
“We have recently received £500k of equity funding from a VCT following an introduction by Pegasus Funding Resources. Pegasus advised the Aerialcell team helping to prepare the business plan and preparing the financial model. They guided us through the process leading to the successful investment. We would not have been able to get the funding needed without the efforts of the Pegasus team!”
Darren Pimm, MD - Aerialcell Ltd.
“I was introduced to Pegasus Funding Resources by a Private Equity House in London. I had submitted my business plan to them but they needed it to be re-worked to give me a better chance of getting the investment that I sought. Pegasus offer an inexpensive and quick Business Plan Telephone Coaching Service that you pay for by the hour. I only needed 3.5 hours to get my plan up to scratch. The Pegasus methodology is easy to understand and their knowledge of what investors are looking for is second to none. If you need help with business plan writing then I can recommend using Pegasus Funding Resources from personal experience.”
Adam Holmes, MD - Structural Elements Ltd.
“Due to the rapid growth of one of the clients where I act as a part-time Financial Director, we needed a confidential invoice discounting facility of £500,000. The challenge, however, was that some of the debt is project based and the concentration on one client was high. This was a no go area for most providers. I was recommended to contact Pegasus Funding Resources by an IBD Business Consultant. Pegasus specialises in finding the most suitable funders for their clients and putting the providers in competition with each other. The result was that we now have an agreement in place with a very understanding and flexible organisation that has reacted very quickly to our needs, thanks to the Pegasus process.”
Ted Bechman, - FD Centre
“Two years ago we used Pegasus Funding Resources to raise £400,000 of trade funding for us. In October of this year we approached them again to raise a further £250,000 and this was again arranged very quickly. Pegasus Funding Resources can be relied on, they always deliver the goods.”
Nick Clements, MD - Millstream Penthouse Systems Ltd.
“I contacted Pegasus Funding Resources late last year, having known of them for some time. I had written my own funding business plan but needed help with a few areas and also to increase my understanding about what Angels are looking for. I engaged Pegasus to run one of their Business Plan Rectification Workshops. Prior to the workshop they analysed my plan and put it through their scoring process. On the day of the workshop we went through the plan section by section. At the end of the day I knew exactly what changes I had to make. Pegasus certainly know their subject well and I appreciate their professional advice and the continuing help that they have given me.”
Rupert Findley, MD - Sunday Studio Ltd.
“Our own Bank had turned us down for a loan of £360,000, as had other sources of funding. We were recommended to contact Pegasus Funding Resources. Having been turned down by others, this was now an urgent requirement, so Pegasus used their extensive network of banking contacts to find a source of funds that were willing to discuss our needs over the phone and by email. The loan was agreed in principle in this manner and we only met the Bank to sign all the documents and to comply with the money laundering requirements. In the present market conditions getting a loan so quickly and in this manner proves the strength and professionalism of Pegasus’s network of contacts.”
Nick Clements, Director - Millstream Penthouse Systems Ltd.
“Many thanks for the detailed information (Business Plan), which was refreshingly professional!”
