Podcast EP 2 - Pre-Seed Funding

Beth Gladstone
Dec 31, 2019

In this episode we're talking about "pre-seed funding". Working out how to fund the development of a product before you even get to the stage where you have your first customer is a challenge. You can either boot-strap it yourself or look to do a pre-seed round from friends and family as well as Angel Investors. In the UK, there are some great tax breaks for investors in the early stages of a company's evolution including SEIS and EIS schemes, which makes it a great place to start a new company.  

We talk about what it was like for us and some of the things we learned along the way.
