Dear Sha,

I suggest you find out through Business Link what business options are available; had you thought to set it up as a commecial business with you as an owner or as part of a trust with you being a trustee or a paid project manager?

There would be lots of grants available, I suggest you register for free with www.j4b.co.uk.

Another point of contact would be your Local Learning and Skills Council, to see if there is a demand for your product.

Good Luck

Hi Sha,

I've pointed you to a few potential sources of funding in my reply in the Personnel topic, but you may also find it useful to take a look at the Be Your Own Boss section of this website. It contains an article entitled Sources of Business Funding within the Finance and Funding section.

To access Be Your Own Boss, simply register at http://www.shell-livewire.org/cgi-bin/register.pl (this is different from registering for the Mentor system).

Good luck,
