Explore your finance options with our #TechTrowbridge event.

Unfortunately the bank holidays seem to have conspired against our marketing and our bookings for this seminar have been quite low. We have therefore taken the tough decision to postpone. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you and we hope you will join us when a new date is scheduled. In the meantime if you have any funding questions please do get in touch with our FSB Funding Platform if you are an FSB member https://fsbfundingplatform.co.uk/. Thank you.
