Start Up Loans Company


The Start Up Loans Company was established in September 2012, when Lord Young identified that if self-employment was rooted in the British mentality and considered as a viable career path this would lead to increased job creation.

The mission of Start Up Loans Company is to ensure the provision of affordable finance, free mentoring and support for those who cannot obtain funding from alternative sources.


Start Up Loans are government-backed personal loans for business purposes. They are available to businesses yet to launch or those that have already started trading. The Start Up Loans Company works with a network of Delivery Partner organisations, who support Start Up Loan applicants in all regions and industries throughout the UK.

Their activities include:

  • Business Planning & Cash Flow Forecasting
  • Mentoring
  • Business Offers
  • Blog with interesting tips
