Whether you are a new or established social enterprise you are very likely to need funding in order to meet your objectives. Funding can take many forms including grants, loans, social investment bonds and equity investment.
Before pursuing funding opportunities it is important to determine the amount you require and what the funding will be used for. Depending on the type of funding you pursue it will be necessary to either submit a bid application, a business plan, present to potential investors or a combination of these.
Not all of these will be appropriate for you and our advisers can discuss the options available and help you get to a stage where you are ready to seek funding.
