Birmingham City Council is supporting entrepreneurs through a new Start Up Loan Programme
Birmingham City Council is pleased to announce it is acting as an official Delivery Partner for The Start Up Loan Company, funded by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, to kick-start enterprise in England.
The initiative is being championed by James Caan, business entrepreneur and former Dragon’s Den investor, and has been backed by Prime Minister David Cameron.
This is a low-cost, unsecured loan available to business entrepreneurs in Birmingham, with invaluable access to quality business mentors and exclusive business products from Corporate Partners including Regus and Intuit.
Loans of up to £10,000 are available and this funding is open to all business sectors.
Please note: loans requested should be the minimum necessary.
The package will enable individuals to prepare a business plan to assess their suitability to take on loan finance, and their ability to repay the loan with interest. Mentoring support will be provided to ensure clients continue to develop their business, and have the best possible chance at success. Where necessary, specific advice will be provided to overcome barriers to growth.
