Case study - Duplex Investment Fund

Matt Crowther was able to set up the ‘Lazy Pug’ pub in Shipston-on-Stour after receiving £75,000 of funding from the Duplex Investment Fund, delivered by CWRT.

The Duplex Investment Fund, is a part-loan part-grant finance initiative for capital investment projects. The funding is exclusively for existing businesses trading in Coventry and Warwickshire.  

The finance initiative is funded by the government’s Local Growth Fund, Warwickshire County Council and Coventry City Council. The Local Growth Fund is managed by Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
