Corporate Funding Solutions

Our Corporate Funds invest in high quality European companies (SMEs) where there is a need for flexible capital solutions, which more traditional sources of funding such as banks are unable to deliver. ESO’s funding solutions minimise equity dilution for business owners and can therefore be more attractive than traditional private equity. 

The geographies in which we invest include the UK & Ireland, DACH, Benelux and the Nordics. We define SMEs broadly as a company with:

Enterprise Value up to


EBITDA of up to


We understand the importance of long-term relationships and the challenges of working with growing SME’s, so we bring a proactive approach to supporting growth. We partner with aspiring business owners and management teams, providing dedicated support so they can reach their goals. Our single source of capital addresses all their needs and is often preferable in terms of equity dilution, cash payments, flexibility in financing growth and future acquisitions, often with tax efficiency.
