Hi  - just starting up a drone inspection business covering Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk -

Anyone any good stories to relate about getting funding?

I've got to be honest, this is probably the best time for funding.

Talk to your local authority and see if they have any new business start up grants. Can you tap into any of the 12 month free interest loans or do they specifically say you need to have been trading for a set period?

Failing that, if you haven't any trading history, then as long as you have a sound business plan, approach a bank for funding. Final option, if you are turned down by the banks, look at something like Funding Circle or similar crowd funding.
