About BizBritain

How it all started

BizBritain was first founded in March 2012 by multi award winning entrepreneur Matt Gubba as a resource to help people start their own business, after he saw a need to create alternative options for the rising levels of people choosing not to go university. Having left school at the age of 16 himself, Matt has always held the passionate belief that success in business doesn’t require a degree.

In 2013, BizBritain became a national delivery partner of the the Start Up Loans scheme, a £350 Million government fund which was set in motion by Lord Young and chaired by former BBC Dragon and entrepreneur, James Caan. At the time of writing this, BizBritain has funded almost 2,000 Startups with a combined total of £20 Million.

By 2016, BizBritain had become a fully FCA authorised financial services company, brokering a range of financial products and access to investors for start-ups and SMEs, and in 2018 partnered with lender ThinCats to launch a £50 Million SME growth fund.
