Let’s face it, pulling on a balaclava and robbing a bank is likely to get you into a whole heap of trouble, but finding business finance can be notoriously difficult so it’s very possible that in jest the thought had crossed your mind!
Plus, we all know the type of business expansion that needs a big injection of capital is also best carried out with a big injection of business support – that’s if you want to be able to repay the loan and sleep in your bed at night.
So here at Jones Harris we’d always advocate that if you’re thinking about any kind of capital investment, expansion, diversification etc, that you should always speak to us first. As business advisors we can help you to make sure that your plans are sound and therefore are successful, but not only that, we have such a lot of knowledge and advice to offer too.
For example, the Access to Finance service which is provided by Boost Business Lancashire. If you’re considering alternative sources of finance like venture capital, business angel investment or crowdfunding and need further specialist support, the Access to Finance service will work with Lancashire businesses to assist you in raising finance to fund growth.
Their specialists will provide one-to-one support with developing business plans, financial forecasts, investment readiness and applications for funding. The service is fully funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Lancashire County Council, so there is no direct cost for it.
Access to Finance is just one of the many projects, services, specialists, consultants, companies and organisations who we know here at Jones Harris, understand and can signpost you to, to ensure your business success.
So make sure that your business makes the local press for your expansion and growth, not for wearing a black balaclava!
