PKF Francis Clark is all set to host Finance in Cornwall next month, to highlight available finance options for businesses across the county.
The event, which will be held on May 16 at The Lighthouse Cinema in Newquay, will bring together an array of funders and business support organisations for a morning of short presentations and an expert panel.
Split into three sessions, the event will cover grants and business support available; debt funding – including non-bank options; and equity funding.
The event will be of interest to business owners at all stages of business maturity – from start-up to exit, specifically those interested in understanding the range of funding options potentially available to them. The event also gives attendees plenty of opportunity to ask questions and network.
Ian Hughes, partner at PKF Francis Clark, said: “Many business owners still only consider their bank when it comes to looking for funding for their business. In some cases, this will be sufficient but for many they should be aware there a host of other opportunities available, and this event is about highlighting those external finance options.
“The British Business Bank recently reported that for over 40% of SMEs a perceived lack of awareness of the range of finance options available was a barrier to them obtaining the finance the required. We want to highlight and help businesses throughout Cornwall, by highlighting the myriad of funding options as well as giving them a framework to decide which is best for them – and giving them a steer on how to get investment ready.”
