Over the past few weeks, we have seen changes and measures emerge almost daily to deal with the coronavirus crisis. With things having evolved so quickly, we thought it appropriate to provide an update on the current status of Midven.
In response to COVID-19 we have introduced full remote working in a manner that enables our whole team to continue operating as normal, whilst observing the social distancing measures established by the government. Calls to the office phone number will be diverted. If we are unable to answer the call, please leave a message and a member of the team will come back to you as soon as practical. Alternatively please message us via firstname.lastname@example.org or directly to your usual Midven contact. Until further notice, we are utilising tele-/video-conferencing to enable meetings to still take place.
Our team has been working extremely hard over the last few weeks supporting our portfolio companies, providing updates on, and access to, available support and resources, whilst helping to develop appropriate operational and financial plans to deal with the current situation. This situation is unprecedented and unsurprisingly therefore has taken up a huge amount of bandwidth. As such, we would like to apologise to anyone that has been in touch and found us to be in any way slower than usual to respond – we hope that you understand and would ask you to bear with us.
It is still essentially business as usual and we have a number of funds actively investing so remain keen to speak to businesses with high growth potential and ambitions, and would encourage all businesses seeking investment to still get in touch. At the time of writing we are in the final stages of completing a number of new investments and follow-on investments. You can continue to submit an enquiry/business plan/pitch deck through the Midven website (https://midven.co.uk/looking-for-investment/) or via the email@example.com. We will usually respond initially by email and subsequently set up an initial call/video-conference to discuss the investment opportunity if it meets our criteria
As you would expect, our events have been put on hold until further notice.
Please be assured in knowing that we are taking all necessary precautions to see through this time. We wish everyone strength, unity and health as we overcome this together. Until then, please do not hesitate to email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
