Business Funding Clinic

1-1 Funding clinic. Bookable 1 hour appointments. 10:00 – 13:00


  • You are an ambitious business owner. You want to grow your business and you need to secure funding.
  • You don’t want to be ‘sold to’ but you would like to understand your options.
  • You want to learn what lenders and investors are looking for and how to be prepared.


These 1:1 sessions focus on your business only, not on general advice, as no two situations are alike. Discuss what you are looking for, which options are open to you and how to get your business ready for funding.

Learn what lenders/investors will be looking for, how you need to best support this and what terms you could expect with some suggestions on next steps.

If appropriate, you will be able to explore whether the Government-backed ‘Start Up Loan’ is a possible solution for you and find out your chances of success in securing up to £25,000 per director by taking advantage of it.
