WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Whether you’re looking for finance to start a business, grow to the next level, or stay ahead of the competition, we’re delivering greater volume and choice of finance.
When you’re trying to start a business, finance can be the key to getting your idea off the ground.
But often it can be difficult to find, with lenders sometimes reluctant to serve riskier, early-stage ventures. For those without personal savings or contributions from friends, families or associates to draw on, the result is at best a slow and unsteady start, and at worst no start at all.
That’s why the British Business Bank, through its partner the Start Up Loan company is funding loans of up to £25,000 – available to entrepreneurs, in addition to mentoring and advice, to ensure budding businesses get the best start in life.
Whether to hire more staff, take on new and bigger premises, or invest in equipment, early stage growth finance can make all the difference for businesses seeking to scale rapidly.
The British Business Bank makes it easier for businesses with high growth ambitions to find the early-stage finance they require by investing in a range of equity funds focused on UK businesses and supporting high growth loans.
For established businesses, access to finance can mean the difference between staying ahead – either through expansion or getting day-to-day working capital – and falling behind.
We increase choice of both product and provider for smaller businesses through investing alongside or providing guarantees to our partners.
