No matter how great a business is, it’s not going to get anywhere without one very important thing; money. Finding the money to get your business up and running requires a lot of preliminary planning, whether you’re going to pursue outside funding or choose to use your own savings for the first few months. There are several options when it comes to securing outside funding however, regardless of which financing route you take, your potential investors need to see evidence that your idea is practically viable before they sign their signatures on the dotted line.
This interactive masterclass has been designed to take you step by step through the core elements you need to become finance ready.

This masterclass will focus on;

  • What types of funding are available
