Funding for starting out in business post-Covid
September 8 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Getting business going can be daunting when faced with blank paper and a bank account with no money in it. This funding webinar helps you think about getting started, what costs to incur and how to get money for your journey into business.
Who is this session for?
For micro businesses, new starters, graduates, sole traders and those looking to venture out on their own.
What will we cover?
We will explore the business landscape following three lockdowns and how businesses can be funded and started. Cash is key for business so getting some, making shrewd purchases, and getting cash in, will all be covered in this insightful, action-orientated webinar.
Over the 90 minutes, we’ll look at the main sources of finance to get your business going; how to work out how much money you will need and the types of funding that can help you. There are usually several types and sources of funding so we’ll help you plan your approach to each of these.
