Part-company - what kind of fund is available?

Hi

Im just wondering if all the usual grants and funding available to full time companies apply to those being set up part-time with the idea of going full-time at a later date?

Can anyone let me know

Thanks as always

J

Hi

I started my business part-time and recieved a grant. I don't think it really matters all that much as many of us cant afford to just give up work in the first instance due to mortgages, families, etc etc...

Hi

Its called a Get Set Grant and a received it from an organisation in my area called "Enterprise Trust" Not everyone qualifies and if you do, it is subject to your business being monitored regularly.

At my first meeting with the organisation, they explained that if I didn't qualify, I could apply to the Prince's Trust who do grants and loans with good interest rates
