Stuart Rostron, former Business Growth Enabler at NatWest, will discuss the different ways you can finance your start-up. There are many forms (and costs) of finance for the start-up market and Stuart will address all of the schemes that are available to you. Stuart has years of experience helping small business owners in the county grow their business and achieve success through preparing business plans, cash flow forecasts, and connecting you with the right people.

Stuart has been self-employed for 17 years working with Co-op Estate Planning. He has to find ALL of his own work and has used networking to do this over the past two decades. He also has experience within the local and international insurance sector, local manufacturing, and retail business banking.



Entrepreneurs’ Network events are offered by Start and Grow Enterprise, a University of Gloucestershire project with funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Start and Grow Enterprise supports the growth of Gloucestershire-based entrepreneurs and start-ups (trading up to 3 years) through free training, events, networks, and resources.

To take part in the Start and Grow Enterprise project, you will need to complete a short joining form.
