Funding a Business, Social Enterprise  or Charity

Much Progress can be made without Funding.  Many businesses or organisations start with little or NO money.  However sooner or later funding is required.  This could be personal funding, or from family or friends.  Outside this sphere there are many possibilities.  Banks, Financial Institutions or Venture Capitalists should be approached once a Business Plan has been created.  Listed below are organisations who can assist with Funds for a Business, a Charity or a Cause.
