Hi, I’m Matt Haycox

an entrepreneur, investor, funding guru and consultant for business owners and entrepreneurs in sectors including finance, hospitality, leisure and digital.

From factory machinery to desktop computers, new buildings to acquiring stock, I’ve funded them all, along the way creating thousands of new jobs and money for the British economy.


If your business needs capital to help it flourish, I can provide funding from £10k to over £1 million, often doing deals in less than 24 hours! My dedicated team of experts will work closely with you to understand how you and your business work so that we can build a tailored and flexible finance package that’s right for you.

If you’re worried that you don’t have a solid trading history or a perfect financial past, talk to me – you might be surprised by what I can do!

I know that speed is of the essence, so you will always get quick answers and ‘no nonsense’ advice.

I have been providing and arranging the finance to help private businesses (including my own) to achieve success since 2004. With a particular interest and specialism in the leisure industry, I opened my first pub at 21, and 5 years later had built up the most successful lapdancing

brand in the UK, turning around venues that other operators, including Spearmint Rhino, had written off and making them profitable again within weeks.

In 2006, I established a finance brokerage and private lender to formalise my lending activities, and 12 months later became the largest single shareholder and director of a PLC listed finance company.

Raising finance and building successful brands from scratch has given me invaluable wisdom and insights that other finance experts don’t possess. From pulling pints in my own pubs to serving on the board of a PLC, I can draw on a business journey to give advice that is grounded in reality.

Having spent the last 10 years, advising, investing in and funding companies, I’ve now seen and lived almost every business situation, from roaring successes to abject failures!

Whatever the sector, and no matter how complicated the situation, if there is potential in your proposition, I can help you with the funding to take it forward. I’m proud of being the person to find and provide creative solutions to funding problems long after others have given up, ensuring my clients achieve their own entrepreneurial vision.
