Small Business Advice Week has partnered with British Business Bank to celebrate ambition in smaller businesses, and to encourage them to explore ‘what’s really possible’.
The British Business Bank is a Government-owned, independently-run development bank that is supporting around £5.2bn of finance to nearly 75,000 smaller businesses. Its mission, which fits perfectly with Small Business Advice Week, is to make finance markets for smaller businesses work more effectively, enabling those businesses to prosper, grow and build UK economic activity.
The Bank’s new interactive website – the British Business Bank Finance Hub – has been built to help businesses, and particularly scale-up businesses, understand and discover the finance options that could help them fulfil their growth potential. Through expert insights, it offers independent information on a range of finance options best suited to support these ambitions.
At the centre of the site is the British Business Bank’s new Finance Finder, a simple six-step tool that enables smaller business to explore a range of the finance options, both equity and debt, that might work for them.
