Financing your growth event

Join RSM for a financing growth event, in conjunction with the Black Country LEP. Hear from expert speakers who will discuss various funding options and alternative finance sources.

The recent RSM manufacturing survey showed that over 50 per cent of respondents need to access funding in order to grow.

  • So why do 60 per cent of SMEs only contact one provider when looking for finance – generally their own bank?
  • With around a third of those cancelling their plans if they receive a no. (British Business Bank, annual report 2016).

Join us on Wednesday 28 June where you will learn about financing your growth, you could also leave with the finance you need.

7.30am: registration
8-9am: introduction from Ninder Johal (LEP board member) and panel discussion
9-11.30am: 1-1 discussions

Venue: Hawthorns, 9 Birmingham Rd, West Bromwich B71 4LF

We will have the full spectrum of funders available to you – from free government grants to debt funding to private equity and everything in between. There will be local, regional and national finance solutions and each of the funding providers will be accessible to you for one to one discussions about your needs. Speakers include:

  • Beechbrook Capital
  • BGF
  • British Business Bank – discussing the Midlands Engine fund
