Overview

##

A successful business requires funding to get it started. There are many ways to get your business up and running, from the informal such as personal savings and borrowing, borrowing from friends and family, to the more formal avenues like bank loans, raising equity to crowd-funding. This course will help you consider the finance options available for businesses, and how to fund the expansion of a business.

This is the final course in a series of six about ‘starting a business’.

This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for students at schools and colleges. They provide a taster of undergraduate study at the University of Leeds and help students to decide which subject to study at university.

Completion of the courses will also enhance students’ university applications.

The courses can also be used as a teachers’ classroom enrichment resource.

Courses in this collection are also great for people that want an introduction in the specific subjects discussed in each course.

As the final step in this course of 6 modules it rounded off very well the whole experience. Dr Simmons presents her material in a clear and concise manner and is a pleasure to listen to. She shows the student that everything to do with the funding has to be taken into consideration and how to do that by the exercises that are set.
