Access to finance and funding

Business growth funding with a stack of pound coins

Access to finance is one of the biggest barriers to growth, innovation and internationalisation. Without funding, your business may struggle to grow in a competitive market.

Not only will business funding help you to improve and develop your products, it can accelerate innovation within your business, increase efficiency and productivity, improve processes and enable you to discover new ways to deliver products and services - ultimately giving your business a competitive edge.

How we can help

If you're an ambitious business looking to innovate and grow internationally we can help you. Our team of finance specialists will work with you to understand your finance needs, develop an investment plan and identify the most appropriate sources of finance available for your business.

Our access to finance support will enable you to:

  • understand your finance needs
  • develop a solid investment plan
  • produce a set of financial projections
  • analyse suitable finance options including private, angel or venture capital investment 

Crowdfunding is another great option for funding your business and Cavendish Crowd has £5,000 to give away to top performing campaigns!


Support is provided free of charge to eligible businesses.
