Other funds are available however, my business partner and I are planning an initial startup investment of 10,000GBP each. Is there standard investment amount which would qualify me to work?
as in personal relationship? no. just a business partnership.
if i could inquire further.... if my business partner has already established the business, is there a "simple" way for him to have the newly-formed company of which i will be a partner, sponsor me?
the company is set up as a limited company.
would acquiring work permission be easier if I were to become a shareholder? i would be an equal partner, and not quite clear what the difference is.
