News: No-Nonsense Guide to help businesses find finance


A new online guide to help Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) access funding for growth and innovation was launched by the Government.

The "The No-Nonsense Guide to Finance for High Growth and Innovative Businesses", will act as a one stop resource for companies which want to know where and how they can access sources of funding available to support innovation. It is available free of charge on the Business Link website.

The guide offers advice to firms on how to assess your funding needs; where and how to get the right advice; the funding options and processes; how to pitch to and deal with investors; and case studies from businesses.

Minister for Economic Competitiveness and Small Business, Baroness Vadera, said: "Innovative businesses will play a key role in the future of our economy so assisting these businesses to innovate and grow is particularly important, especially during challenging economic times.

"This guide draws on the experience of a range of businesses and the expert advice from the industry. It is a succinct and practical resource that will leave innovative businesses better positioned to take their next steps."
