HOW TO FUND YOU BUSINESS

 

BACK JACKET

 

How do you raise the money you need to get your business off the ground, to help it fly even higher, or simply to keep it in the air?

 

This is the challenge that entrepreneurs and growing-business managers wrestle with all the time - and this book provides the answers.

 

Written by an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs, How to Fund Your Business explains:

  • How to get your business 'funding ready'
  • What investors and financiers want
  • How to present your business to potential funders
  • All the different types of funding that are available
  • The stages, small-print, ratings and contacts for many sources of funding
  • How to negotiate with funders - including Venture Capitalists
  • What to do once you've got the money

 

How to Fund Your Business distils all this real-world experience into an essential, easy-to-read guide to getting the money your business needs - whether it's £500 or £50,000,000.

 

Funding your business is too important to leave to the accountants, so this is not a book of boring, complicated jargon.  This is the practical know-how you need to have to get the money to make things happen for your business.

 

 

‘I used the advice in an advance copy of this book to undertake a funding round. We successfully raised over £1m to grow our business. One international bank told us it was the best proposal they’d seen in four years. This book really works.’

David Fleming, Finance Director, Red 5 Retail Ltd

Format: Paperback
This book puts a grown up perspective on raising start up cash. What seems like the most obvious way forward might not be the best for your business now, or in the long term. Steve Parks goes through the options available and explains when and how to use each one. Finance isn't my favourite subject but this is clear, easy and detailed enough to set you off on the right track.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By StartupChick on 27 April 2007
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for finance for your business - whether it is at start up or growing stage - this is for you. I have been a fan of Start Your Business Week by Week since I first got my hands on it and this follow up is full of details on all the different types of funding available to entrepreneurial businesses, with comments and ratings on them all.

It is written by an entrepreneur, and you can really tell, as it is far more easy going and accessible than anything I have read on raising finance before. (Sorry to any book writing accountants out there, but I am not great with spreadsheets on their own and this book has a great way of explaining the process and what needs to be done.)

It says on the back cover "This is the practical know-how you need to have to get the money to make things happen for your business." and I think that really is the best way to put it.

If you need to raise any money AT ALL for your business - read this first!
