Coaching and mentoring are often the first steps to prepare a client for a successful fundraising campaign. What funding options are available, and which ones are most appropriate for you? There is a bewildering array of finance providers in the market today, in addition to the normal high street banks. We will work with you to identify an appropriate funding strategy and pre-assess your current readiness to secure funding before any application is made to a lender, or an approach is made to an equity investor. Our credit analyst will assess your current financial position, in exactly the same way as any funder will do, and we will review all accompanying information such as business plans and financial data that will support your application. It is very important that you make the correct first impression with any funder, which usually requires suitable preparation beforehand. Your business may well be suitable for external funding, but your funding proposition, business plan and financials may require further development before they can be used as part of a successful fundraising campaign.
Funders are often constrained by a lack of suitable opportunities rather than by a lack of available capital.
