Starting Your Own Business

X-Forces - Funding for starting up your own business.

You or your partner are about to leave the forces. It’s a big change that brings with it a whole new series of financial implications. You’ll be moving out of SFA and will be thinking about either the cost of market rate rent (usually more than the cost of renting your SFA) or taking out and servicing a mortgage. All these new financial obligations will need to be paid for somehow.

You know you’ll need to sort out a new job but the thing is, you like the idea of working for yourself and you’ve actually got a great idea for starting up your own business.

You’ve drawn up some initial plans and worked out that you need some basic equipment, an office, a vehicle and some good quality marketing to get you out there. All this costs money – and that’s money on top of the initial expense incurred from the impending move into civvy street.
That’s where X-Forces come in.

X-Forces are an organisation that’s been specifically set up to provide business support and finance EXCLUSIVELY to members of the Armed Forces and their spouses. We’ll provide you with a business mentor and help you write your business plan. Did you know that two out of three start-up businesses fail because they never draw up a plan? You’ll have continuous access to your business mentor throughout the life of your business. And the best part of the offer..once we’ve written and agreed the business plan together, we’ll source funding for you for all your initial set up costs at competitive rates that no high street bank can offer. This initiative is supported by corporate sponsorship and government initiatives and the service is free.

Your time in service has already shown that you’re not afraid of the unknown. Contact X-Force and we’ll help you turn your dream into a reality.
