NETFunder - Access To Finance

Access to finance is a key part of the NETPark service and with NETFunder, we can provide you with bespoke searches for grants, loans and equity schemes that are right for your business. 

For businesses looking for grant, loan or equity funding
Bespoke search for schemes appropriate for your business
Saves you time and effort required for fund searches
We send you your full bespoke reports for your records
Scheme/programme information, direct contacts, relevant links all included
Fast, confidential service
Comprehensive funds database covering all regional, UK and EU schemes

Our service will search and create a bespoke report containing the funds and schemes that are relevant to your business. 

Funding schemes are laden with criteria. These criteria may be dependent on a number of factors, for example, your business type, geographical location, what the funding is for, etc. By asking you a series of questions, we can filter out schemes that are not relevant to you, and give you information about the schemes for which you may be eligible. 

This discreet and confidential service will take out the time and effort required on your part. 

NETPark Investment Panel

Companies linked to NETPark or NETPark Net can also benefit from access to the NETPark Investment Panel, which provides investor readiness support to companies looking for angel or venture capital investment. 

Every business will look for finance to fund their growth at some point. Let us help you by contacting our Innovation Development Executives on 03000 261 261 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
