About Rajesh

I'm a Chartered Accountant, working within the financial sector for over 14 years, with Venture Capital experience includes, working with MSIF, AXM Venture Capital Limited of the North West Funds and Spark Impact Ltd.

A corporate financier and have previously worked for Langtons Corporate Finance, RSA Plc and United Utilities Plc, bringing a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise.

With an ambition to provide bespoke service offerings, it was a vision and insight that led to the creation of Tilston Ventures Limited in 2013. Now, as director and founder, I dedicate my time to creating the ideal financial solutions for clients and their businesses, offering simple, pragmatic, funding solutions.
  

Current Role Details

I run Tilston Ventures, where we understand how difficult it can be for SMEs to find simple, pragmatic solutions to achieve the levels of finance they need to develop and grow. We specialise in helping technology companies become real world ‘investor ready’ and guide them through the mire of finance raising and its legal jargon.

Growth sucks cash and we can find you sources strong enough to withstand the drain long enough for your returns to manifest. Whether it’s raising debt, equity, grants or alternative forms of financing, we can help you along at every step of what can be an incredibly difficult process.
