Gaynor Dykes Regional Manager, Growth Finance Manchester +44 (0)20 7728 2055

I have worked extensively in the UK finance market with a focus on supporting smaller and early stage companies to raise the external debt or equity funding they need to grow and fulfil their potential.

My experience helps me understand the challenges company founders and directors can face when raising finance. I can help them navigate their way through the fund raising process in an efficient, effective manner, improving the opportunity for them to secure funding from the most suitable funders in the market. I have worked with companies of all sizes and stages across different sectors, and with a wide range of funders including business angels, SEIS/EIS funds, VCs, crowd funding platforms, high street banks and alternative lenders.

I lead our growth finance service in the North West, delivering our services to clients across the region and helping them to also access the wider support available to them from our firm, our networks and our connections.

Outside of work I am kept busy by my two horses, two cats and a dog.  As long as I’m outdoors doing stuff (in all weathers), then I’m happy!
