Topic: From startup to scaleup – what are your funding options?

Grants, bank loans, crowd funding, equity investment, trade finance and invoice discounting are just some of your funding options - but what works bests, which is the right fit and when might it be the right fit?

  • Funding options for start-ups and early stage businesses

  • Sources of finance for established and growing businesses

Embankment is the nearest tube, exit riverside, cross the road, turn right and go under the bridge and it’s the first ship. From Waterloo it is a pleasant walk over the Hungerford Bridge.
