Alternative ways to raise finance for your business

Event details

Times are changing in finance and small businesses now have a wide range of options when looking to borrow. Join us for this event where our speakers will discuss the less obvious sources of finance and the new opportunities for new types of funding available to business owners across Gloucestershire, Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset.

There will then be time for questions at the end of the event. If you have a burning question already, please feel free to submit it when you book and we can ensure our panellists address it at the event.
