Access funding

There is a lot to be said on keeping your expenditure down when starting a business.  Spend as little as you can to start with. 

Some questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you need it? – Really think through every purchase you want to make and ask if it is essential. Do you need an office? Could you co-share and have a space within an existing business? Are there purchases that can wait? Differentiate between want and need.
  • If you do really need equipment could it be better to rent or lease rather than buy immediately?
  • Negotiate and shop around – everything is negotiable. Always ask for a discount when you buy things.
