Even the glorious British sunshine won't stop your customers and investors jetting off on their holidays. Summer is a tricky time to raise funding for a startup.

One strategy is to put your fundraise on ice, and ramp up again in September when the investment community returns. But for startups in seasonal sectors like fashion, retail and consumer products, a timely injection of capital is crucial for buying stock in preparation for the next wave of sales.

If you're up against the clock there's three things you can do to get existing commitments over the line a.s.a.p

1. SeedFAST

Use this quick agreement with any initial investors you have lined up to get an EIS & SEIS compliant cash injection now, and do a funding round later.

2. Instant Investment

If you have a number of investors committed, but not quite enough to meet your target raise - no worries! With Instant Investment you can close a smaller round with the investors you have now, and top up later at any time.

3. Bootstrap Round

If your potential investors are friends, family or people you know - you won't need those complex investment agreements designed for professional investors. This dramatically reduces closing time. With our Bootstrap round, you can complete your round now quickly and simply instead.
