Starting a Business 6: Funding Your Business – Course Content
A successful business requires funding to get it started. There are many ways to get your business up and running, from the informal such as personal savings and borrowing, borrowing from friends and family, to the more formal avenues like bank loans, raising equity to crowd-funding. Whether you have an idea for a venture in the future or you already have a side-line business whilst studying, this course will help you consider the finance options available for your business. It will give you the time to plan, share your ideas with others and start to document your thoughts in a structured business plan.
Throughout the course you will join a community of online learners, providing an opportunity for interactive learning with other students both in the UK and internationally.
No previous knowledge or experience of business or enterprise is required, just an interest in businesses and how they emerge.
