Funding

It wasn't that long ago that borrowing from your bank, friends, or relatives were the only available options if you need to raise money to start your business. How times have changed! Thankfully, a whole new world of 'alternative funding' has emerged.

The government also recognises that start-ups can play their part in the economy as potential tax payers and employers hence the introduction of the Start Up Loan Company. This fund allows you to apply for up to £25,000 per person - Find out more

East Sussex Sources of Funding

BBX
Interest Free Credit: Looking for business finance? If you’re anything like most SME owners, you’ve probably lost sleep over at least one of these scenarios: Cashflow problems, not having enough cash in your business to function smoothly. Not knowing how to grow your business or how to fund the expansion. Needing funds to invest on updating your equipment and technology. Pulling your hair out due to late payments or bad debt from customers. Your slow season is getting longer and busy season shorter leaving a massive cash gap. These are valid worries. Cash can disappear and be agonizingly slow to come in, and sometimes a loan feels like the best option to help you through those times….. is it though? BBX doesn’t replace your cash business but gives you additional revenue by selling your spare capacity within the BBX community.
