Looking to Start Up

Are you an early-stage company, less than two years old?
See what our START UP solutions could do for your business

When you’re trying to start a business, finance can be the key to getting your idea off the ground.

But often it can be difficult to find, with lenders sometimes reluctant to serve riskier, early-stage ventures. For those without personal savings or contributions from friends, families or associates to draw on, the result is at best a slow and unsteady start, and at worst no start at all.

That’s why the British Business Bank, through its partner the Start Up Loan company is funding loans of up to £25,000 – available to entrepreneurs, in addition to mentoring and advice, to ensure budding businesses get the best start in life.
