British Business Bank has launched a new interactive website that
offers independent information on finance options for scale-up, high growth and
potential high growth businesses.
The new site features checklists to get ‘investor ready’ as well as articles from
finance providers on how smaller businesses can identify and access the right
finance for their growth ambitions.
At the centre of the site is the British Business Bank’s new Finance Finder, a
simple six-step tool that enables smaller business to explore and identify some
of the finance options that might work for them.
The new online hub, backed by research into the way today’s aspiring business
leaders access information in the digital age, has been designed to appeal to
busy, digitally-savvy smaller business leaders with engaging, jargon free
content, infographics, and videos as well as event listings to allow small
businesses to grow their networks. Plus, there are case studies and learnings
from real businesses who have successfully accessed finance. The information hub can be found at www.financeyourgrowth.co.uk.
Keith Morgan, CEO, British Business Bank said: “There are bright and
brilliant businesses all across the UK. But often, their growth ambitions
aren’t realised because the financial landscape is complex, daunting and
misunderstood. We want to change that. We want to help businesses
understand their finance options and through clear, practical tips put them
in the best position to successfully access the right finance for their
growth potential. That’s why we have created a best-in-class Information
Hub to raise awareness of the finance options available to the UK’s small,
high growth businesses.”
Central to the development of the resource is a partnership between British
Business Bank and 12 industry leading editorial partners who have provided
their expertise on a range of 17 types of finance included in the information hub.
Editorial partners include Beauhurst, British Private Equity & Venture Capital
Association (BVCA), Business Growth Fund, finnCap, London Stock Exchange
