Practical advice

Minerva Businesses get practical advice and help finding the right funding and right support

We don’t just provide access to finance because we know that Investors and lenders look for different characteristics and risk profiles in proposals. Making sure you are ready for the journey ahead and setting expectations is a fundamental part of what we do. We will advise on your business plan, your funding strategy, introduce you to other facilities and services available at the Science Park as well as help identify suitable resources, regionally and nationally if we think it will strengthen your business and chances of attracting funding.

One of the key benefits of working with Minerva is potential access to the wealth of diverse knowledge, experience and expertise that our business angels can provide both after they have invested and importantly even before you pitch. Business Angels are often happy to provide advice and guidance on some of the key issues and questions you will almost certainly have to face when you present your business case.
