Access to Finance Start Up to Scale Up: How can businesses work together towards a better future

Silverstone Technology Cluster

21st October 2022

The Silverstone Technology Cluster (STC) held the third event of the Access to Finance series. This Start Up to Scale Up workshop, in partnership with British Business Bank and SEMLEP Growth Hub, on Thursday, 20th of October at the Innovation Centre at Silverstone Park.

British Business Bank and SEMLEP Growth Hub delivered in-depth presentations and shared useful insights into various finance programmes available to businesses striving to grow and expand their operations by taking advantage of different investment and funding options.

The event also included two exclusive panel discussions led by Lewis Stringer from British Business Bank, one targeted at start-ups and one targeted at businesses looking to scale up. The discussions delved into the various funding options available to SMEs and start-ups and prompted great questions from the audience that got addressed by the expert panellists.

Our thanks and appreciation go to our guest speakers Lewis Stringer, Senior Manager at British Business Bank, Ruth Cozens, Team Leader at SEMLEP Growth Hub, and Sandra Edwards, Partnerships and Events Manager at SEMLEP Growth Hub. We would also like to thank our expert panellists:
