New Scheme to help young Entrepreneurs

The Government-backed Start-Up Loans Company offers people between the ages of 18 and 24 loans of £2,500 to get their businesses off the ground. The scheme, which was launched in May, aims to create over 30,000 new businesses in the next three years, has £10m available to lend.

If successful, it will be boosted by a further £32.5m in the next financial year, and £40m between 2014 and 2015.

The entrepreneurs will also be given mentors, training and support from larger firms as part of the year-long pilot.
So far it has received almost 2,000 loan applications as it begins lending.

James Caan, Dragons' Den panellist and chairman of the company said:
"The whole objective of Start-Up Loans is to provide that initial seed capital that gets the business up and running."

Lavinia Newman, Founder of ABDS comments:
“The funding is being provided by a network of organisations including The Prince's Trust, Sir
Richard Branson's charity Virgin Unite, and Business Finance Solutions in the North West.”
