I just started a recruitment agency in the last few eeks, and would like to know what my options are with regard to getting start-up finance. I just recntly finished a degree in accounting, and have no real work experience, so im quite wet behind the ears. someone suggested taking out a life assurance policy to act as a source of surety when i get a loan eventually, but at the moment, im not sure as to how and where to go to get start up funding. I need start up costs for things such as stationery, advertising and travelling to meet clients. any suggestions?
