The startup founder’s guide to startup funding

Sponsored by Standard Ledger

Standard Ledger Startup Funding

Scaling your startup into a stayup can seem like a daunting task. So much to do, so little time … not to mention money. Did you know running out of cash is the second biggest reason startups don’t succeed?

Bootstrapping can take you so far (and then some) but you will need to access other sources of funding to survive, such as R&D tax incentives, forward funding, grants and equity investors. Choosing which source to go for depends on which stage you’re at and what you want to achieve.

This ebook will explain each of these choices within the funding life cycle so you can forecast your startup’s growth and plan accordingly. Experienced startup accountants outline practical steps to help you prepare for fundraising and share real life stories from startups who have made it to the other side.

Understand your funding options and become the founder of your dream business today.
