A subsidiary of the British Business Bank, Start Up Loans is a government-backed scheme designed to support businesses who struggle to access other forms of finance.

As part of their national network of Delivery Partner organisations, if you're eligible we can help you to prepare your business plan and cash flow forecast, assess your final loan application and provide ongoing mentoring support to successful applicants.

A Start Up Loan is a government-backed personal loan available to individuals looking to start or grow a business in the UK. In addition to finance, successful applicants receive 12-months of free mentoring and exclusive business offers to help them succeed.

The loan is unsecured, so there’s no need to put forward any assets or guarantors to support an application. All owners or partners in a business can individually apply for up to £25,000 each, with a maximum of £100,000 available per business.
