Are you in the fashion or design industries and looking to raise external finance to grow your business?

The UK funding landscape is ever-changing and almost weekly a new alternative source of funding becomes available to small businesses. If you have identified that you need to look externally to raise finance to grow your business, how will you navigate the funding landscape and identify which source of finance is the right one for your business? And crucially, how do you avoid wasting your time chasing the wrong funders?

‘Ready. Fund. Grow.’, brought to you by G is designed specifically with your business and your fundraise in mind. G’s Growth Finance team are experts in raising funds for small businesses – they have helped to shape over 400 equity and debt fundraising transactions in the last five years. 87% of the businesses G has supported have been successful in getting introductions to funders. Crowdfunding has emerged as a significant source of finance for high-growth companies in recent years. Crowdcube is one of the UK’s largest crowdfunding platforms, with over £360m of finance raised and over 600 businesses completing a successful funding round on the platform to date.
