British Business Bank hosts Business Finance Week 2022
Whether an established business or looking to grow, finding information around finance can be complex and challenging for smaller businesses. Business Finance Week has been created in response to the significant impact that Covid-19 has had on smaller businesses, and the continued pressure they are under, grappling with the rising cost of living. Many businesses are in need of additional financial support and digestible guidance to help them navigate the current economic climate.
During five days of nation-wide and regional in-person events, webinars and more, the British Business Bank is helping smaller businesses, and the organisations and people that support them, learn about the different finance options available to support their individual business needs. Each day will be centred round a key theme, giving attendees the opportunity to hear from experts in their field on a varied range of subjects:
- Monday 7 November: Funding your start up - where to find the financial support new businesses might need to grow.
- Tuesday 8 November: Angel investment - find out how angel investment works, and what an angel can do to take businesses to the next level.
- Wednesday 9 November: Equity for growth - all you might need to know about selling a piece of a business including when it’s the right time, how much to give up, and where to find the right investor.
- Thursday 10 November: Debt for business - managed correctly, debt finance can provide a cash injection that could help your business meet its potential. Learn more from our experts.
- Friday 11 November: Green finance - with sustainability a key priority for smaller businesses, what finance options are available to support green ambitions?
