Radio Show: How to Stretch Your Start-up’s Funding Without Giving Up Equity

placida acheru swSo you have decided to start your own business. If you are starting from scratch, what would you do? What kind of business will you start? How will you get funding?   

 Since the most valuable currency in the startup word is equity, more and more startups consider alternative, equity free, funding mechanisms: crowd funding, peer to peer lending, startup loans and – last but not least – government grants.

In this episode of Keep Your Dream Alive, host Placida Acheru had quite an interesting conversation with one of GrantTree founders, Paulina Sygulska Tenner.  GrantTree, based in the heart of the Tech City, raised over £7M worth of government funding during its last three years of operation. In her usual candor and passion, Paulina, shared the dynamics in this fast moving industry and her experiences as an entrepreneur.

From listening to the conversation, you will :

1. Find an inspiration from a genuine, passionate entrepreneur who started from scratch and built a successful business;

2. Gain knowledge and insight about what it takes to build a business;

3. Gain an insight into types of UK Government funding available for innovating companies, and more.
