View Full Version : How to get financial backing for a small business idea?

07-02-2003, 05:14 PM
I am graduating from university this summer and have an idea for starting up my own small business. The idea involves setting up luxury kennels for domestic pets close to a major airport somewhere in the UK. The kennels themselves will range from those with carpet and sofas for the more 'spoilt' pet to a box-standard kennel for an animal that is perhaps used to living outside. As well as offering a service for the pet, I would also like to offer a service for the pet owner. Depending on what package the pet owner has paid for, this could range from a nights accomodation, free car-parking and a shuttle minibus service from the kennels to the airport.

I am ver enthusiastic about this idea, but realise that finding money to set up such a project would be difficult to obtain. Can you suggest anything or any way which might help me gain financial backing to set up this small business plan?

You certainly sound really enthusiastic about your idea. Before you go any further how are you getting on with your business plan? www.shell-livewire.org has a whole host of information about starting a business. If you register for a pack under 'your account' you wil be allocated a business adviser who you can talk through your ideas with and who will know about funding in your local area.

Good luck
