Every business needs money to start-up. No matter what kind of business you're planning, it will almost certainly cost you money to reach the stage where you're ready to start selling your product or service. For example, you might need to buy materials and equipment, or pay for promotional costs. And at the very least you're going to need money to live on while you're getting your business up and running.
This guide includes videos to get you thinking about what your business might need money for - and where you might be able to get funding.
