Applying for funding is a complex and time-consuming endeavour. Starting a new enterprise isn’t easy, but growing it is even harder.
Most high street lenders require security, charge high fees and impose onerous conditions and unless you have a realistic business plan your chances of success in securing funding are very limited. Small enterprises frequently waste time on unsuccessful loan and grant applications.
Let us help you find the right funding partners for you, help with Bid writing, drafting prospectuses and submitting Requests for Proposal for:
Secured and unsecured loans
Grants, Donations, Legacies
