Finance Friday: It's all about the Money
Fri 14 October 2016, 11:30 – 12:30 BST
FINANCE FRIDAY SESSION WITH DORSET GROWTH HUB'S INVESTMENT SPECIALIST, NICK GREGORY:
It’s all about the money!
Whatever stage of your business career you are in, from pre start-up to existing growing business, one of the major issues holding you back is likely to be access to finance.
Typically, friends and family helped at very early stages assisted by credit cards and any available funds, and, as the business grew into one with a trading history the banks began to get involved and tended to be the major funder from then on.
With the development of the many and various FinTech companies (over 100 now), and many other sources of finance available, from crowdfunding to mezzanine funding, it is sometimes difficult to find the “right” funder for you.
Using our wide networks, our Finance Specialist Nick Gregory may well be able to help you through the “minefield” and find the right funder for you or at least help you to provide the details needed to access the finance you need. It is a FREE, confidential, 1-2-1 (via phone, or face-to-face at WSX Poole office) with any business owner across Dorset to help with the business finance.
