Your scale-up funding options

There are several scale-up funding options available when looking at how to get funding for a business.

Commercial loan

Sometimes known as business loans, these are paid back over time and you can often set up flexible repayment plans.

Trade finance


Supports purchases or sales of products you might be selling or buying from other countries. This can free up cash that would otherwise be tied up waiting for goods to arrive.
