Alex Francis, CEO of loveholidays, chats to us about what has surprised him as an entrepreneur about working with private equity, and how it has enabled his business to flourish.
Alex: When I was looking for private equity houses, I needed a private equity house that was going to be providing the money firstly, but was also able to help, but not interfere. There’s a fine line there. Livingbridge has proven to be much more of a helping variety than an interfering variety. For me, as a founder and entrepreneur, the last thing I’d want or need is a third party trying to interrupt what we do as a business. They’ve proven to be quite the opposite to that, and that, for me, has been incredibly useful, and makes me very happy frankly.
