    Hey, I'm a 19 year old designer and have some designs. got 10 made and sold all 10 , used that money to buy softwares that will help me with the designs.

    I would like the designs printed on tshirts/sweatshirts, set a website etc... but have no money to start it with.

    I would need atleast £5000 to get things started.
    I don't work so can't get a loan from a bank.

    How would I get some funds for my business?

    Thank you

    Dragons Den prefer someone that has their business running not one thats just getting started.

    I tried getting a job and still am, most places want people with expirence, I even took a one month work expirence at the house of fraser and still can't get a job.

    while I'm looking for a job to help me save up, I need some funding to get it started.

    not sure who I can contact :/
