Going to a business angel is one option if you are looking at equity finance. This guide should give you a better understanding of who business angels are and what they offer.
Where can I find investors?
Networking is a good way to find potential investors: attend events sponsored by your local Business Link and chamber of commerce. Speak to friends and business associates about your venture, too - word of mouth can spark investors' interest and create a buzz around your company. Associations such as the British Business Angels Association can help connect you with interested parties.
