Enterprise Nation unveils a new Funding Hub to help small businesses get finance

Posted: Thu 29th Feb 2024

Today marks the beginning of our exciting new partnership with Capitalise, which will give start-ups and small businesses quick access to the finance most suitable for them.

This is possible thanks to our new Funding Hub. All you need to do is spend a couple of minutes filling out a few details. The hub will then present you with a series of recommendations tailored to you and your business, including:

  • useful resources and advice

  • the opportunity to connect with financial experts for tips on starting or growing your business

  • free e-learning modules on how to access and manage your finances

  • exclusive discounts and offers to support you on your entrepreneurial journey

As part of the Funding Hub, you may well be eligible to apply for funding through our partner, Capitalise, who can help connect you to finance from a wide range of providers.

Benefits of the Funding Hub

Aside from connecting small businesses with funding, our partnership with Capitalise has some other key benefits:

1. It's transparent

You can see which lenders are competing to fund your businesses, and access personalised results in minutes. You can then decide which lender to go with (and, indeed, when and how).

2. It's simple

Capitalise's tool is designed to identify the most appropriate funding choices based on your business and your circumstances. And if you need help at any point, Capitalise's team are on hand to support you through the process.

3. It's free

Unlike when you use a finance broker, the Capitalise tool is completely free. Its unique model makes sure you get all the benefits of comparing available deals without paying more than you would if you went directly to a lender.

4. It's about more than just finance

Yes, you can get funding for your business. But Capitalise's tool also provides access to business credit scores, online workshops and e-learning modules to help you learn more about finance.

Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones said:

"We're thrilled to be working with Capitalise, who are doing exciting work to give small businesses and their advisers transparency and control over business finance.

"Our partnership to deliver independent funding support and advice in one place comes just at the right time. We'll work closely to make sure businesses have the means to access the funding they need to take advantage of the opportunities on offer in 2024."

Paul Surtees, Capitalise's CEO and co-founder, said:

"Our partnership with Enterprise Nation is built around the principle of giving every business an equal chance of success by increasing financial understanding in the small business community. With access to over 100 business lenders, our aim is to help them build a healthier business."
