My last blog looked at the success within the UK of Crowd Funding (or Peer to Peer lending) for businesses, especially SME businesses. Read about the Peer to Peer lending platforms to close this gap and make a real success for UK businesses and individuals alike. This blog is about the alternative sources to finance, rather than having an owner manager dipping into his or her own savings, retained profits or going to a bank manager (if you can find one).
