Delivered via Zoom
Our finance insight group brings together entrepreneurs with an interest in gaining a deeper understanding into how different financing strategies can help them to grow and strengthen their various business interests.
In our first session, we are looking at how challenger banks are supporting SMEs by offering innovative types of financing that you might not have realised are available. We will hear from three entrepreneurs who will share their first-hand experiences of working with challenger banks to their advantage.
Joining Entrepreneurs’ Forum Chairman James Robson MBE will be Andy Stevenson, Ardmore Craig, Richard Bradley, Dyer Engineering and Julie Skevington from Sincero. They will each discuss their personal experiences working with challenger banks and we have allowed plenty of time for Q&A amongst the group.
This group is open to all entrepreneurs who are interested in developing great insight into the world of finance. The discussion is shaped by your views and experience, so while we hope to cover the topic in detail, we may discuss other subjects related to finance during the session.
