Grant funding and when it might be appropriate for your business
This is the first part of an exclusive three-week finance course for business owners. Each masterclass is a practical session designed to help you understand the role of ‘Finance’ as a core dimension in your business. We are going to look into how to create a business plan that's helpful going forward, how does healthy cash-flow look like and how to calculate Profit & Loss to gain a real understanding of your business. In the final session, we will provide an overview of mainstream and alternative funding options as well as the marketing startegy required to successfully apply for either of them.
We aim to ensure readiness before applying for any kind of investment and arm you with practical knowledge applicable to your business straight away.
