“We took out a Start Up Loan so that we could focus on raising finance and finding new investors to grow our business. The process was simple and Startup Direct connected me with a business mentor, whose expertise was vital during the fundraising process. We then went on to raise a further £150k through crowd funding and we’re reaching for the top!”

The Start Up Loans Company does not provide grant-based funding. Meeting Monthly repayments form a primary condition of the loan agreement applicants accept and sign. Like other credit commitments, failed Start Up Loan repayments may affect an applicant’s credit score and formal action may commence against the applicant for missed loan payments.
