Whether you're launching a startup or expanding an existing venture, the right financial backing can make all the difference. SimplyBiz has streamlined the process to help entrepreneurs like you access the resources you need.


Step 1: Craft a compelling pitch deck

This is not just a PowerPoint presentation, it’s a vital document that communicates your business idea, strategy, and potential to investors and lenders. Take the time to get it right!

Log in to your SimplyBiz account and navigate to the Funding page. Here, you'll find valuable resources and tools to assist you in developing a pitch deck that stands out.


Step 2: Utilise the quick funding wizard

With your pitch deck ready, it's time to explore funding options that suit your business. Our Quick Funding Wizard simplifies this process.

Visit the Funding Wizard page and answer a few essential questions about your business, its needs, and its goals. The wizard will generate a list of suitable funding options tailored to your unique situation based on your responses.


Step 3: Connect with your chosen funder

Once you've identified a funder that aligns with your business goals, it's time to make a connection with potential investors or lenders.

Select your preferred funder, complete the provided contact form, and attach your meticulously crafted pitch deck or business plan. Your request will then undergo a moderation process to ensure it aligns with the funder's criteria. Once approved, your proposal will be sent to the funder for consideration.
