Did you know that pre-pandemic research from the Bank of England* found that 60% of SMEs which would have applied for funding ended up using their own funds instead? And that over 50% of those that do apply, only ask their own bank for funding?
There are nearly six million SMEs in the UK and far too many are missing out on opportunities to fund the growth of their business simply because they don’t know what lenders are looking for, which lenders to approach, or how to approach them. This is a frustrating situation given that there are now a myriad of funding options available from both traditional and alternative lenders.
But how do you find the best funding package and get the deal over the line?
At 10:30am on Wednesday 2 March, corporate finance experts Shaw & Co will be hosting a free one-hour virtual event that will provide SME business owners, MDs, FDs and NEDs with insight into the traditional and alternative lending markets and how you can get the growth funding your business needs.
Featuring experts from both traditional and alternative lenders, as well as experienced legal advisors, the webinar will consider:
• The Process: How do you approach the funding markets?
• Getting Your Funding Proposal Right: What are funders looking for?
• The Pitfalls to Avoid: The classic mistakes in financial models that halt funding in its tracks.
• Getting the Deal Done: Due diligence and the legal hurdles.
