Access to Finance

Our dedicated team of professional advisers offer advice and signposting to a range of funding providers.

We also deliver training workshops in partnership with funding providers to help you understand the different types of finance and funding opportunities appropriate to your stage of business development growth.

How do we do this?

An adviser will ask you a number of questions in order to understand your business. We will discuss with you the stage of business development in order to ascertain the amount of funds required and the types of funds being sought, for example loans, business angel equity investments, venture capital funding, social funding or grant funds.

The adviser will then use the Northamptonshire Growth Hub funding database as well as drawing on their substantial knowledge to identify potential funding and financial resources for your business.

We will then provide the most relevant information and/or links to guidance and information resources and signpost you to other helpful contacts, therefore saving you time and journeying down misguided avenues of research that may not be relevant to your business. Some national resources and information are provided below.

We will also signpost you to appropriate training opportunities, workshops and networking events where you can learn from specialists and other Northamptonshire-based businesses.

Targeted referrals will also be made to relevant local, national and EU grant funded business support and development programmes, making sure that your business details are passed on.
