Welcome to the Business Enterprise Fund

The Business Enterprise Fund is a social enterprise that lends money to businesses who are unable to get lending from the banks. It started trading in 2005 and, as a social enterprise there are no share holders, with any profits generated reinvested into the business.

The Business Enterprise Fund believes that it is important to fill the funding gap for those who are unable to draw on the main sources of loans for one reason or another. If no-one is prepared to take a risk with those who do not have good credit ratings, then we will lose the potential of creative and talented individuals.

That's why we took the decision to set up the Fund; to support and help create successful small businesses across West and North Yorkshire. The Fund is investing in the future of business in the region and that's a risk worth taking.

We are currently making some development changes on our main web site which will be unavailable for a few hours. If you would like to talk to us about how we can help your business please call us on 0845 2003919 or send us an email.


We are part funded by The European Regional Development Fund.
