The £30 million boost to the Government's start-up loans scheme will give the next generation of entrepreneurs the finance and support to start their own business, helping Britain to get ahead in the global race.
The additional money will boost the total pot for start-up loans to over £110 million over the next three years, potentially helping to start tens of thousands of new businesses.
The Prime Minister also announced that due to demand from those who had just missed out on the scheme, and the challenges faced to secure loans to start a business, the age limit for application will now be extended from 24 to 30 years old.
