Following the closure of the old Tier 1 Entrepreneur route the UK Government has opened new applications under the route of Start-up and Innovator Visas. 

Both of these require an applicant to have an Endorsing Body endorse their business plan, this could be a laborious task as if your application is rejected it could take an unknown amount of time before you are able to reapply to your endorsing body again.
