    Hi everyone,

    I've really enjoyed taking part and hope I've been helpful. There is a useful summary of Government support available to small and medium sized businesses available here if you want further details: gov.uk/bis/financeguide

    Really wish you all the best with your businesses.

    Oh, and if you'd like to ask me some questions directly, check us out on Twitter (@IngeniousBrit), or join our Linkedin group (which incidentally has a subgroup based all about small business finance which you can access HERE: linkedin.com/groups?gid=4986095&mostPopular=&trk=tyah


    I also mentioned this is in passing, but we're crowdfunding at the moment, and we'd love it if you could take a couple of minutes to check out our pitch and video, and let us know what you think. If you can invest, that's brilliant, but if you can share it among your social media following or email contacts, that'd be great too.

    Our pitch is available here: crowdcube.com/investment/inteligis-ltd--12699, and if you'd like an easy place to share our mission, visit this page here: inteligisgroup.com/ib/


    THANK YOU!

    Really good points here. I guess it will all start with a good research. Thanks for your help, Gary!

    True, Emma. That's what I imagined, a kiosk in a shopping mall or one of those popup shops in a high traffic place on the high street. You might position it as an alternative to putting your money in a bank and gaining little interest. That said, with an element of risk to the trade, it probably isn't suitable to promote this to the 'mass market' channels.

    Excellent alternative. I've not heard of them, another is a Rockstar Mentoring. They are a paid service and do the rounds at all the UK business shows. Useful.
