Start up Loans

For Start-ups, SME's and Social Enterprises

Start up loans

If you have a great business idea and you’re looking for a start up loan (or you have a business under two years old) then we would encourage you to visit the Start Up Loans Company website for more information –

Unfortunately Impetus is no longer able to directly provide loans under the scheme.

Supporting all sectors

Their programme allows for loans of between £500 to £25k and our  recipients included a wedding shop, a coffee shop, a skatepark and a fitness training business – so the scheme can support pretty much any kind of organisation within the West Midlands.

And to ensure you keep on track, business finance mentoring is available.
