About – Prepared for funding?


What we do

We help businesses raise £5M to £250M by creating clear, compelling funding propositions and connecting them with smart, enlightened sources of finance.


For preparation services: fixed consulting fees. For successful introductions via Blencathra’s network: percentage of the amount raised and warrants. Where work leads to funding via other sources: fixed fee applies.

For causes we care about: pro bono.

In all other instances we charge a fee. We don’t advise you give your core work away and we don’t advocate it for ourselves.  As much as we might come to like you or your product, if you ask us to work contingently we will politely decline.

Things that matter

People: we strive to be the best and work with the best. People at the top of their game create high impact outcomes. Our task is to find talented people and connect them to work where they can surprise and delight.

Passion: we are passionate about what we do. Passion breaks down doors. 

Money: we are in the “finding money, making money” business. We do that for our clients. Their success in turn makes us money.

Making a difference

Successful funding can mean products and services that positively affect peoples’ quality of life see the light of day when otherwise they might have perished.

For the record

Blencathra is a tricky mountain in the Lake District with two routes to the summit. One is difficult and occasionally fatal, the other much easier.
