Partnering with CBPE
We bring ideas and provide hands-on support to drive success. We work with inspiring businesses and help them achieve their potential.
Our consistent track record speaks for itself. However, in a sector of similar sounding promises, it’s our approach that defines us. This means drawing on everything we’ve learnt from supporting almost 60 different companies across five funds since 2000. How we work with our businesses depends on their circumstances, challenges and opportunities, as well as thier ambitions. Whatever your growth ambitions are, we have the people, the expertise and the experience to help.
