If you have a business idea and need funding, if you need capital to grow your business or if you need to raise finance to begin on your business dream then you know all too well the difficulties of finding that money. For a long time, there have been few lenders with their hands on large amounts of money who are very reluctant to give it out unless an almost guaranteed return is likely. This had led many people with great business ideas quitting or not even beginning their businesses.

Without question, Vince Cable’s drive to stimulate the SME economy through the Business Bank initiative will be welcomed by the UK’s four and a half million small businesses. However, despite the government’s best efforts, a significant gap will remain between funding available from traditional sources and the amount of financial support required by business owners; in particular entrepreneurs. This highlights the importance of alternatives such as pension-led funding.

The 12th August saw the Bristol Triathlon take place at Bristol Harbourside. As some of you know, I have been training (to a degree) to take part in it to raise money for St Peter's Hospice who take care of families suffering with cancer. The training hadn't gone as well as I had hoped and felt extremely under prepared. My wife was telling me to pull out as she didn't want me having a heart attack or something! I felt very comforted by that! Still, I had said that I was going to complete the Triathlon and that was what I intended to do.

To launch something, whether it is a business, website, rocket or rubber-band flung projectile, is an exciting and daunting task that has generally been preceded with months or even years of preparation (well maybe not the rubber-band projectile). Last week I 'launched' my new website in preparation for taking our products to market following years of work on their development.

When I first started to develop my idea of a heated glove, every day was a Freaky Friday. There was so much to learn and understand that I had to play a lot with ideas, materials and chemicals. It was exciting trying to find solutions to problems which more often than not, brought up more problems to solve. As the business developed and my focus moved on to building a company out of the ideas, the innovations took a back seat.
Loved by our customers - here's what they have to say
Hands are still warm after 2 hour cycle – everyone should get some Alago heated gloves!
Thank you for the gloves – they fit perfectly. The weather here in France has just turned chilly so they will come into their own.
Bought the gardening ones for my folks last Christmas – they are keen gardeners living not far from Exmoor, so these are ideal and a great price too!
Met an entrepreneur this morning who has changed my outlook on everything.
