Mark Jones (Business Funding Portal)
Business Funding Portal - The leading source of non-bank finance
In line with currect market condition, our business finance products are sourced entirely outside the mainstream banks.
Most come from the 'the crowd' or peer-to-peer lending, whilst the remainder are mainly from private enterprise.
We can provide:
Short term finance - typically 1 - 6 months.
Term finance - 2 - 5 years.
Equity finance - from 'the crowd'
Most types of business funding from £2,000 - £1 million.
Also see www.kickstartbtm.biz - help & support for pre-start and new start business.
All of my working life has been spent dealing with the finance requirements of SME business, from start-up, through growth and, unfortunately to distress and turnaround situations. I have also stared and grown 2 successful businesses of my own. Kickstart has become my passion and, frankly, a slightly self-indulgent business.
In 1988 I founded what grew to be the UKs largest general finance brokerage. I remain a shareholder in this business.
Recognising the trend for banks and brokers alike to become 'jacks-of-all-trades', offering limited and - at worst spurious - advice on all facets of finance, I eastalished Business Funding Portal in 2006. The crucial difference with this business is that all advice and products come peer-to-peer sources or private enterprise.
