The Start Up Loans Company was established in September 2012, with a mission to help new and early stage UK businesses access affordable finance and mentoring support. Since then, more than 40,000 business ideas have been supported with over £200 million of lending.
A Start Up Loan is an unsecured personal loan used specifically for starting or growing a business. All applications take into consideration both the individual’s personal circumstances, including affordability, plus the viability of the business. Pre-loan support is available to help develop a business plan and cash flow forecast, while free mentoring for successful loan recipients helps to turn a business plan into a reality. Businesses in nearly every sector are eligible to apply for funding, whether it’s a dog grooming salon or dating app.
