Meet friendly dragons who like to say yes

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

LOOK­ING to ex­pand, prob­lems with cash flow, need to take on more em­ploy­ees or you have a poor credit his­tory?

What­ever your busi­ness’s cur­rent fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion, there are fund­ing streams out there to help you move to the next level.

Help is at hand from “dragons” who like to say yes at a busi­ness fi­nance sem­i­nar be­ing hosted by the Cham­ber of Com­merce on Wed­nes­day, June 23, mid­day to 2pm, at the Ra­mada ho­tel, Thorpe Mead­ows, Peter­bor­ough. The cost is £20 (Cham­ber mem­bers) or £25 (non-Cham­ber mem­bers), and in­cludes a buf­fet lunch.

Us­ing a se­lec­tion of typ­i­cal busi­ness sce­nar­ios, this sem­i­nar will see four “con­tes­tants” bid for fund­ing Dragons’ Den style, with the panel con­sist­ing of fi­nance ex­perts from Busi­ness Link East, EEDA, NWES and NatWest/RBS, all des­per­ate to ut­ter those in­fa­mous words, “I’m in!”

Busi­nesses are in­vited to join in and cast their vote and dis­cover which con­tes­tant should go to which or­gan­i­sa­tion for their re­quired fund­ing, and what sup­port they could ex­pect to re­ceive.

Steve Bran­ney, di­rec­tor of at NatWest, said: “We are open for busi­ness and this sem­i­nar gives us a great op­por­tu­nity to sit down with lo­cal busi­nesses and give them guid­ance on how to struc­ture their fi­nance.”
