The founder of the Firkin pub chain, David Bruce plans to raise £10m through the enterprise investment scheme (EIS) so he can develop his latest chain of unbranded pubs, the Capital Pub Company. He set up the company in 2001 with Clive Watson, the former Regent Inns finance director, and it already has 12 outlets. The latest financing will be through a new EIS vehicle, The Capital Pub Company 2. The Times 17/01/04 page 63 (Need to know), page 64
