Choosing finance

How do I raise finance to start or grow my business?

Businesses look for finance for a number of reasons: to turn an idea into a prototype, to establish and start a business, to grow a business, or to help in a time of stress or turnaround. There are a number of options for you to consider – we provide a summary of these on the Grow Your Business section page, which you can then drill down by reading through the resources we provide. The resources below, however, are a great first port of call, as they will help you understand your finance needs before you then look into specific options. We strongly recommend the Business Finance Guide by British Business Bank (the first resource in the table) for this very reason.
