Virgin Startup

Need funding to get your business started? We’ve teamed up with Virgin StartUp Loans to provide startup funding to new businesses across the Midlands. Virgin StartUp is part of the Government backed startup loan programme. The scheme provides loan funding from £500 up to £25,000 to start your enterprise idea. These personal loans are specifically designed for startup businesses and are repayable over 1 - 5 years at an interest rate of 6.19% APR (6% fixed).

We will help you put together your application which consists of a business plan and financial forecast and once you’ve drawn down your loan you will be matched to a Virgin Mentor who will continue to offer you support throughout your first 12 months of trading.
