This panel discussion is aimed at the founders and leaders behind micro, small, and medium-sized businesses, who are seeking to access finance over the coming year and beyond.
How has the funding landscape changed in the wake of Covid? What will happen to public funding and how has the Government’s stance on SME support changed? How can business owners choose the best funding route for their business?
This experienced panel will help navigate the current economic environment and share practical tips for businesses owners that need to finance their growth. Everything from government loans to alternative finance products will be discussed – as well as how SMEs can access these products. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A with all panellists.
