Money Money Money – Funding Your Creative or Digital Business

Are you looking for business finance to help you start or grow your creative business ? What alternatives are there available to start up or scale up in the north east and nationally ? This session will help you understand the access to finance process and how to identify the right option for your business. This workshop will cover in plain and simple language :-

  • Grants
  • Traditional Finance vs Alternative Finance
  • Business Loans
  • Crowdfunding
  • Peer to Peer
  • Equity & Investment

It will also look at the best methods of packaging up your finance requirements and how to present or ‘pitch’ this to funders so the request is clear and you improve your chances of success. This session will be brought to you by representatives from Teal and Transmit Start Ups who have years of experience of helping creative businesses demystify this process and access finance .

Teal is a friendly and convenient signposting service that helps you find the right finance for your startup or early stage business. They have used their knowledge and expertise to compile a database of business finance providers so you don’t have to get into a flap about it and recently produced ‘The Plain and Simple Guide to Small Business Finance’ which is available to download as an e-book.

It is made up of a team of experienced creative entrepreneurs who understand what is involved in starting and growing businesses.
