While some high street banks are still an option for a robust proposition with match funding or the security of the equity in your home, many start-ups have found that traditional bank overdrafts and loan facilities are no longer a realistic hope.
Thankfully, a whole new world of 'alternative funding' is emerging. You may or may not have heard (apparently 95% of UK businesses survey haven't) of equity based crowd funding, reward based crowd funding, peer-to-peer lending, pension-led funding, invoice trading, debt-based securities business angels and private investing (as seen on TV's Dragon's Den).
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
