TEN provides solutions for the BIGGEST business question...how do I FUND my business?
The Enterprise Network recently hosted two free to attend events to answer one of the most fundamental questions any business asks, "How can I fund my business start-up?" or "How do I fund business growth?". The events were staged at the new Enterprise Center in the Nadder Comminuty Hub in Tisbury and the Castledown Enterprise Centre, Ludgershall.
The events featured a series of bite size sessions delivered by finance professionals and designed to help business unlock funding potential. There was time for 1-2-1 discussions with the financial experts as well as an opportunity to meet and network with other businesses.
The topics covered ranged from traditional bank and invoice finance, to grant funding, peer-to-peer lending and crowdfunding. Expert advice came from a team of partners offering independant information about finance options for business and included, Nikky Williams and Aaron Britton from Nat West Bank plc; Nick Battisson, Business Development Manager at RBS, Mike Slaughter from Get Set for Growth; Craig Jackson, Regional Partnership Manager at Funding Circle; Anthony Lovell de Souza of Crowdfunding Playbook; David Brown of Prime Business Finance.
At the Ludgershall event, Julie Hutchison from Transforming Performance also gave some simple, down-to-earth advice on strategies and tools for developing confident effective leadership to transform your business.
One of the attendees at the Castledown Enterprise Centre event commented "I attended this event at Castledown yesterday. It was well run, very informative and well worth my time. It opened my eyes to funding sources I did not even know were in existence... the speakers were excellent...so to get the benefit of their expertise for free was brilliant."
