#FSBConnect Milton Keynes & North Buckinghamshire - Different Ways to Access Funding

Your opportunity to join #FSBConnect Networking and effectively develop and grow your business through our national network of events.

Events are held regularly, every last Tuesday of each month, starting at 18:00.

All welcome so why not bring a friend/colleague.

Join fellow business owners and entrepreneurs in a friendly, informal environment at Milton Keynes College. This month we will hear presentations on ways to access business funding.

This month we'll hear from the Senior Relationship Manager at the British Business Bank about funding intitiatives aimed to improve access to finance for SME's such as; MEIF, The £40m Debt Fund and £13m Small Business Loans funds. We'll also hear from the Velocity Growth Hub about grant funding available to SME's in Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes, Aylesbury Vale, Northamptonshire or Cherwell.

Lewis Stringer, MEIF Senior Relationship Manager, British Business Bank will explain how the Bank is improving access to finance for SMEs through its various initiatives, focusing on MEIF. MEIF will provide £250m of debt and equity funding to SMEs across the Midlands, including the SEMLEP area. The £40m Debt fund and £13m Small Business Loans fund were launched on 29th August, and the Equity fund and Proof-of-Concept fund are due to be launched later this year.

Lewis Stringer joined the Government’s national economic development bank, the British Business Bank, as a Senior Relationship Manager, supporting the delivery of the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) in the East and South-East Midlands, in October 2016.
