Calderdale digital agency secure £30,000 to fund their growth plans

Working in partnership with PwC and the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), FINPOINT helped Ayup to raise a business loan to support their business needs.

Calderdale business, Ayup, have rasied a vital business loan to grow their business through the FINPOINT platform, with support from partners Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and PwC. 

Steven Taylor, Ayup Managing Director said:

“Our LEP growth manager, Ken Brockbank, listened to our plans and recommended we use the Finpoint platform when we look for funding, which turned out to be a really easy and convenient way to get in touch with several lenders through one application” 

Ayup Digital Agency provides a range of high-value creative services to various organisations across a range of sectors. Based in Hebden Bridge, it has won key clients in the major cities of Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham and London.

Steven needed to raise finance so they could create new and larger state-of-the-art premises to attract top talent as well as execute their marketing plan.

FINPOINT captured Steven’s attention because he could apply for finance once and get access to over 80 lenders.

“It is a great one-stop-shop for business finance.”

Steven then created their funding project on FINPOINT platform with guidance from PwC and his LEP Grwoth Manager. After getting a free completeness review and crafting their funding request, their project attracted the interest of four lenders on the Finpoint panel.

We asked Steven how was their experience of raising finance through FINPOINT platform:

“Entering our requirements was easy and after a few days we had lenders expressing interest in a more detailed discussion with us. In the end, the Business Enterprise Fund best understood our growth plans while offering the most competitive terms.”
