The history of Matt Haycox
My business career started in 1999 when I was thrown in at the deep end to turnaround a failing corporate clothing business. Since then I have lived the highs and felt the lows of business success and failure in many different sectors.
So in 2006, I established a finance brokerage and private lending business to provide funding to business owners struggling to get the capital they need to grow.
My invaluable experience of raising finance for my own businesses makes me different from most other lenders in the marketplace. Having had to do it for myself, I know the problems first-hand that businesses suffer, which means I also know how to solve them.
My career has varied from pulling pints in my own pubs to serving on the board of a PLC so I can draw on a business journey that gives advice grounded in reality.
During my past ten years working as an advisor, investor and funder of multiple companies, I am able to effectively recognise a great business opportunity and ensure business owners get the opportunity to progress to make it a success. Learning from both my past successes and failures, I’ve worked through almost every business situation that can be thrown at a business owner.
