Managing Director and Co-founder Simon Hill has been featured in an article on BusinessZone about the current coalition government’s approach to supporting small businesses. Do people feel the coalition supports SMEs? Or not?
“Funding is a fundamental issue for SMEs, yet the Small Business Bank launch saw George Osborne say SMEs should go to existing banks for funding, whilst Vince Cable said it would lend direct. For SMEs to access funding through banks is tantamount to impossible in the first few years, precisely the time they need the support. This conflicting thinking has characterised much of the coalition’s work with SMEs.”
