Tailwind was founded to address a major concern for SMEs specifically in the Fashion and Footwear sector - how and where to find the most appropriate external funding needed for the rapid development of their business. Tailwind supplies a joined up approach to fund raising.
Tailwind helps businesses navigate the complexities of fund raising and will ensure those businesses are ready and able to obtain the type and level of funding they need to scale up their operations.
Tailwind services also cover the financial and business planning necessary to prepare these companies for dealing with potential sources of funds.
Having been closely involved in this sector Tailwind has a clear idea of which funders understand and welcome working in the fashion market. For example over 11% of all Business Angel investments is in the fashion and retail markets and the rapid growth of the serial investor either as an Angel or member of EIS syndicates is very important. These investors are experiencing more opportunities coming through, and are seeing that the ratio of success to failure is improving.
