Start-up Funding options for UK companies

In today’s episode Adrian Lawrence talks about the UK as a location for new business start-ups.  The UK is fortunate in that it is very focussed on supporting early stage businesses, the Government has setup a niche bank to offer self certified loans to new businesses, and there are many grant scheme available from both Central and Local Government.  

Crowdfunding is another great option as you can get backers for your concept ranging from people who just want to donate to help start-ups succeed through to investment platforms offering share investment.

The challenge is not around the early stage investment but for those businesses seeking follow on funding as this is less competitive and investor are often more demanding in their expectations.
