Today was mint! We were at Virgin Money HQ in Newcastle giving a talk about The *TeaShed and start up loans to some top business people and Virgin Money Superstars.
Virgin have a new loan scheme for 18-24 year olds in the North East and Cumbria who are starting their own business. You can have up to £25,000 with a low 6% interest, repayable over a negotiated amount of time. Not only that but you get mentoring and training with it. Sounds pretty sweet!
We are hoping to get on the scheme but may be a too old (!!) unless we act quickly. Failing that we are happy to take discounted broadband or half price flights?! Sir Richard B if you are reading this, we would LOVE to go to New York to set up a *Tea Shed out there!
It really is such a fantastic scheme and brilliant for the North East & Cumbria. Thanks Virgin!
Ooo and we gave a Northern Brew TeaPod to Coloccini (Newcastle United) today!
