Only need £5,000 or less? Try our fast track process

Every business is different and not everyone needs the same amount of investment. Sometimes we only need a little bit of help to launch our business or just some last-minute support for our ongoing issues.

For this, Startup Direct’s Fast Track Process is a simple, quick and easy way to get the funds that you need.


You might be asking…”What is a Fast Track Process?”

A Fast Track Process is a simplified loan application process for people looking for loans from £500 up to £5000. The average application timeframe for a Fast Track Process is 1-2 weeks. In comparison, our regular loan applications have an average time frame of 4-6 weeks.


Here are some advantages of this type of loan:

  • You don’t need experience with writing a business plan.
  • This type of loan is more accessible for people with lower credit scores.
  • The application process is even faster than other types of schemes we offer.
  • You don’t need some of the supporting evidence required for the full Start Up Loan such as; quotes and invoices for start-up costs.


Applying for this loan will give you access to our Startup Direct membership which includes:

  • A dedicate business mentor that will help you along the way.
  • Discounts from our business partners
  • Exclusive networking events across the UK
  • Our weekday helpline
  • Invitation to our professional workshops
