A few years back we all went to a handful of well-known banks for our business finance. Today we have an overwhelming array of funding available to growing businesses, but how do you find the right option?

In recognition of this, we have developed informedfunding.com, a platform that connects businesses to finance in a unique, completely independent, way. This is a major collaborative initiative that was launched in February 2015, and has since grown to be the largest platform of its type, providing information and guidance on over 700 sources of finance in the UK.

Informed Funding is an online information resource designed to help growing businesses identify the range of options available to them to raise finance. It offers a combination of bite-sized factual information and guidance, along with self-service online tools that enable users to hone in on the providers who best match their needs.
