Let’s be honest, cash is the lifeline of any new business. We are acutely aware of that so an open-door policy lies at the heart of forburyTECH. Our understanding of the role of funding is deeper and more diverse than most other law firms. Our associated venture, Forbury Investment Network (FIN) has for many years helped early and growth stage technology businesses unlock their potential by providing strategic investment readiness advice, access to new markets where appropriate, and introductions to relevant investors.

Supporting ventures overseas

The success of Forbury Investment Network (FIN) has led to a replica network across the Commonwealth in partnership with The Royal Commonwealth Society, whereby our overseas regional hubs provide a structured network to support businesses to trade successfully in foreign markets and become familiar with overseas business practices.

HR and People

With building a start-up comes building a team – whether that be two, twenty, or two hundred of you. Our associated company, Forbury People, is a leading HR Consultancy that has particular expertise working with tech businesses.

Through you can access a full range of HR documents and resources for only £1 a day + VAT. This will help you to save time and money, enabling you to focus on the long term expansion of your start-up.
