Raising Debt

Every business needs profitable customers to make money. Scaling a company, launching new products and services, increasing market share or expanding into new markets almost always requires an increase in working capital. YTKO will help your business access growth finance to make this happen.

With more than 40 years of working with all types of companies, we know that sometimes businesses aren’t familiar with all the different types of finance, or what’s best for them. We make sure that our clients know all the options available, including public sources of finance such as grants, as well as asset, raising debt, crowd funding and factoring. We will advise whether your company is suitable for the private equity route, the pros and cons and help you create a compelling, investable proposition.

Not only have we helped clients raise over £70m to date, but we have a 96% success rate – even throughout two recessions. This is because we start by making businesses truly investment ready. It’s a similar process for raising debt as described on our Raising Equity pages.

Our experts will provide bespoke finance support, and our partner company, FinPoint, can quickly get you a range of competitive quotes. We also provide financial planning, including treasury function, cashflow, and accurate forecasting to ensure that, particularly in the current volatile economic climate, your business growth is based on a sound financial basis. If pricing is one of your challenges, then our marketing experts are here to help with that as well.

GetSet For Growth worked with us to complete our business plan and the financials required to access additional finance. With their help we secured £37,000 through a combination of debt and equity finance, giving us the working capital we needed to bring our product to market.
