Access to Finance: Funding the Next Level

Join us for an event to help you identify the best source of finance for your business.

The funding landscape is complex and with our Access to Finance programme, we aim to help companies identify the relevant sources of potential funding for them, along with the advice and support required to access it. Throughout 2022, the STC will be organising a series of events with specifically this aim. These events will be themed around specific topics, but the aim is always to ensure that any companies attending will get a sound understanding of the options along with advice, a roadmap and valuable contacts on how to proceed.

The first of these events will take place on January 27th, 2022, in partnership with British Business Bank. This event will feature round table disucssions with experts from British Business Bank, Barclays, Foresight and various others around both debt and equity funding.

We will be joined by leading experts;

  • James Syrotiuk, BGF
  • Chris Wiles, Foresight Group
  • Ryan Shields, Grant Thornton UK LLP
  • Allen Hall, The FSE Group
  • Cathal Walsh, Barclays Bank plc
  • Tracy Evans and Ian Mabbutt, EMW Law LLP as well as
  • Chris Bowers - BEES
  • and Dorian Smellie, Total Control Pro Limited

This event is suitable for any cluster company, regardless of size or lifecycle stage, and will help you dispell myths, gain information and help you with identifying the best course of action for your business, along with where to turn for expert advice.

We are planning for this to be a hybrid event held at Silverstone Park Innovation Centre so either join us in person or join the event on-line.

That said however, our 'in person' registration is now closed as we are at full capacity, so if you would like to join us, may we ask that you sign up for one of the 'online' places still available.

Thanks to the support from British Business Bank for this event, we are able to offer a reduced rate for tickets.

Timings: 9.00 – 11.00
