The latest NFBP Breakfast focussed on the subject of ‘Access to Finance’. This is a topic which we regularly hear is a barrier to growth for businesses and is therefore a topic of great importance.
The event in Burley saw presentations from two speakers. Firstly Ian Payne from Lloyds Bank who provided the banking view. He looked at the criteria banks use when assessing applications for funding and what you as a business can do to improve your chances of receiving a ‘yes’.
The second presentation was from Richard Hall of the European Information Service Centre who look after the GrantFinder service. It covered finance from the perspective of grants, funding and private investment. A copy of Richard’s presentation can be downloaded via the link below.
