STC CEO Pim van Baarsen, commented; “It was great to hold our first event of 2022 in partnership with British Business Bank.  We had a really good number of people registering to attend both in-person and on-line, showing how much this type of event is valued. The speakers were all extremely insightful, providing a sound understanding of the options available, along with advice and valuable contacts on how to proceed. We received a lot of positive feedback on the event and of course, it is always good to have people together in a room to network”.

The recording of this event is now available on our STC YouTube channel.
