Supporting local businesses: Access to Finance Summit

On Friday, I hosted an Access to Finance summit, the latest in a series of events to help local businesses, at the Surrey National Golf Club in Chaldon.

I am pleased that around 50 people were able to attend the event, including a range of local firms. The event provided an opportunity for local businesses to learn more about the range of financing options available to them and included presentations by a number of financial providers including Barclays, Funding Circle, Market Invoice and Let’s Do Business Group.

I am very grateful to everyone who attended and spoke on the panel, to Barclays for their financial support which made the event possible and to Surrey Chambers of Commerce for helping to organise it.
