Despite all of the government funding initiatives, many SMEs and sole traders have ‘fallen between the cracks’ and have not managed to obtain any funding yet. We will look at all of the options available to you, so that you will be in a position to choose the most appropriate funding options for your business.
Once you have managed to obtain the funding you need, we will look a how best to spend those funds to give your business the maximum advantage.
The topics covered will include:
- The current status of each of the funding options available from the government (including updates to schemes, latest statistics on loans issued etc.)
- What do you do if you fall between the cracks and are not eligible for these schemes, or you cannot raise enough from these schemes? A look at the other options available to you.
- How to spend your way out of this crisis: strategies for spending those funds that you have obtained.
- What will the funding landscape look like after the lockdown restrictions are lifted?
