We finance start-ups in very exceptional cases; usually this would be a start-up started by a serial entrepreneur or by an individual with years of experience working in the industry in which they are starting the business.
Although there is no minimum requirement regarding own contribution, the lack thereof places strain on the gearing of the business, that is, its debt vs its equity, thus affecting the ability of the entrepreneur to repay the debt and the viability of the business.
We aim to be as quick as possible in giving you a response to your application. The timeframe involved depends on the comprehensiveness of the business plan submitted, the complexity of the due diligence process and the time is takes for you to provide answers and/or additional information as requested by our Investment team, where necessary.
We call ourselves Business Partners International because we are invested in seeing business owners succeed. Our name expresses our commitment to the relationship with the business owners we serve. Not only are we committed to providing business finance solely for viable small to medium businesses, but we also bind ourselves to support business owners with our knowledge and value-added services every step of the way.
That is why we have been the business financier of choice for many business owners for 15 years.
