Coffee and Connect

Join us for the next in the series of our monthly informal meet ups for members in the South West.

An opportunity for business leaders to chat to one another regarding issues that are currently affecting their businesses, or simply to meet some new faces and make new connections.

The topic for this session is "The availability of growth finance for SME’s in the South West." 

As interest rates rise and the liquidity crunch intensifies, is growth funding for SME’s still readily available in the South West?  Is it easier to find in London? Are there alternative places businesses can find suitable finance?

Hosted by IoD ambassador James Savage, this event is part of a free series enabling members to connect and discuss topics of interest.
