Since the world’s banks stopped lending to each other in Aug 2007, the landscape in securing funding for business has changed.

With banks less likely to lend, we looked at alternative sources of funding including:
  • Customers and suppliers
  • Savings
  • Pension led funding
  • Friends and family
  • Personal loans and credit cards
  • Peer-to-peer funding
  • Factoring and invoice discounting
  • Asset finance
  • Grants
  • Business Angels
  • Crowdfunding
  • Venture Capital
We explored the pros and cons of different types of funding.  Coming, as the seminar did, straight after our Return on Investment Seminar, the importance of having a plan for out investments was underlined.

Feedback met previous high standards with a score of 9/10 for Overall Value.
