Access to Finance Summit, 11th April 2019 at Marches Growth Hub Hereford

Are you in the banking or professional sector offering funding and finance advice to small businesses?

Do you want to know more about the best ways to help small and micro businesses get the funding they need to flourish?

If so, this key summit organised by the Marches LEP and Marches Growth Hub is just the event for you.

Who should attend?

Professional services advisers to small businesses, accountants, solicitors, enterprise support advisers, business finance advisers, finance brokers, banks, insolvency practitioners, alternative finance providers.

 Why should you attend?

Accessing appropriate finance is still a major issue for small and micro businesses in the area. Since the credit crunch a significant Alternative Finance Sector has developed. There has been an explosion in the number of players in this sector, from peer to peer lenders, equity funds, invoice discounters and crowd funders to locally based small business loan funds.

The Marches LEP and Marches Growth Hub have drawn together some of the region’s leading experts on alternative finance to tell you just what is available in this rapidly-growing sector.

They’ll explain the various funding streams small businesses can now tap into – including peer-to-peer lenders, equity funds, invoice discounters, crowd funders and locally-based small business loan funds.

We will hear about the latest developments in the provision of finance to small businesses and have the opportunity to contribute to The Marches LEP’s plans to raise awareness of available funding.
