Crowdfunding Definition

“Crowdfunding is a means of raising finance for a ‘proposition’, from a large number of people, who are usually each contributing a small sum. Crowdfunding normally takes place via the Internet.”

Why you need expert help when you’re pitching for investment

Don’t be fooled into thinking that crowdfunding is easy though – on Kickstarter alone for example, 44% of projects failed to reach their target, so if you are considering crowdfunding finance, it’s worth getting expert help to make sure your proposition is packaged as attractively as it could be.

At Access Commercial Finance Limited, finding funding for unusual or ‘tricky’ ventures is our specialism, and that is often what draws companies seeking investment to crowdfunding in the first place. We know what is likely to attract would-be backers, from getting firm financials in place before you launch, to creating a compelling story with a clear exit strategy for investors. Crucially, we also know which crowdfunding platforms work best for which sectors, so we can advise you how to pitch your proposition in the right place, for the best chance of success,

Crowdfunding finance can be a great boost to your business if your venture has a strong compelling story or high-growth potential. It suits companies and projects in every sector from innovative tech start-ups to creative projects, including publishing and film.

What type of crowdfunding do you need?

There are several distinct types of crowdfunding – the one that works best for you depends on your sector, how much finance you need to raise and how much (if any) equity you are prepared to give up.

    Securing mainstream construction finance was never a simple enterprise, but it’s actually getting harder. This is especially true in the UK, where scrutiny from lenders has intensified over recent years, making it trickier and more time-consuming than ever for construction firms - even those with a healthy order book and a history of sound financial conduct - to secure the finance they need to grow.

    The success of your engineering business often comes down to getting the right funding at the right time. Should you invest in sales or technology? Have you identified new products or new economic territories? What are your funding options and how should you be using them?

    UK engineering firms are continually praised for their engineering excellence and there is a strong tradition to maintain. Current engineering feats like Crossrail, Leeds’ new £45m flood alleviation scheme, the new Forth road bridge and the Olympic Stadium show that British engineering ability is still as innovative today as it was in the time of Brunel.

    But it isn’t without its difficulties and finding appropriate finance is often at the very heart of meaningful progression and innovation.

  • What Is Commercial Property Finance and Should You Invest?

    There aren’t many cash buyers when it comes to commercial property development. Anyone involved in this sector usually requires large-scale finance for their projects. Are you looking to develop a commercial project and if so should you even be looking to invest in property development?

    If you’d like to understand whether you want to invest in commercial property, you need a clear distinction on what a commercial property is, how it will be developed and whether you can afford to purchase it. Then, you need to consider whether taking commercial development finance is right for you and if the economic forecast makes it a good time to invest.
