1. Shape the environment in which you operate
We focus on maintaining and shaping your licence to operate by engaging with politicians and policymakers in a rapidly evolving and complex policy and technical environment.
2. Represent the value you bring to the UK: for growth, innovation, and people
Your licence to operate depends on how well what you do is understood by the wider world. We demonstrate the social and economic value the industry provides to the UK and beyond, with the support of facts, figures and case studies provided by our members.
3. Plan the future of your business in a changing world
Your operations and investments are dependent on understanding how a range of different areas are changing: including policy, investment trends and operational trends. We provide you with the insight and opportunity to share knowledge with peers, keeping you on top of developments and helping you to minimise risk.
4. Raise your profile and develop your organisations’ network
With over 700 member organisations, representing over 16,000 individuals, you can engage in a specialist network to develop relationships, work together and exchange insights. Since the BVCA began, this network has led to invaluable fundraising and deal connections. There are opportunities to raise your profile too, with speaking opportunities for LPs and GPs, and sponsored speaking opportunities for other members.
