Turnaround Capital &
Management Experts

Solving problems for companies needing capital and support.

Now we are in 2024 and as the cost of business funding continues to rise and availability of capital declines, do you need turnaround finance for your company or investee? 

If you are looking for turnaround capital this is the right place! If your company is backed by VCs or angels and seeing your cash runway shortening fast or about to run out, don't wait for something to "just turn up"! Will a UK recession in 2024 hurt your great, but struggling manufacturing, service or recruitment business? 

Funding IS available for good turnaround capital projects.  Get in touch for a frank discussion about solving your turnaround capital problems.  Seeking to cleanly dispose of unwanted, loss making, or orphan companies? Get in touch we may have a solution.

Cheswick Capital provides an independent voice to worried directors,  business owners, and venture capital investors when things are going wrong. When the bank says no you need to ensure you have your own plans and alternative funding solutions ready if the business is challenged by debt and distress.  We can cast a new light on the working capital issues, which you may be very worried about.

It is important, and actually a legal requirement, that all creditors interests are maximised if the company is distressed, but it is possible to protect stakeholders interests too, by avoiding Administration or pre-pack. What is your turnaround plan, do you have a "bridge to the recovery zone"? Cheswick's seasoned turnaround experts can build that bridge.
