An event to help local businesses learn more about accessing finance

The British Business Bank, InterTradeIreland and Invest Northern Ireland are hosting the 2024 edition of their annual Access to Finance Conference in Enniskillen on Wednesday 12 June 2024.

This edition aims to demystify external finance for smaller businesses, raising awareness of ‘alternative’ finance options and how they complement traditional bank finance to accelerate growth.

Hosted by BBC News Correspondent Mark Simpson, this free, in-person event will look at funding options for local entrepreneurs from early-stage right through to well-established businesses.

Who should attend?

This event will be beneficial for local businesses that are interested in learning more about available funding options and the positive role of external finance when it comes to successfully growing a business.

It will also be useful for business and finance advisors and the wider intermediary community supporting businesses on their funding journey.

Attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of the different types of available finance and the importance of getting the right finance at the right time.
  • Hear directly from some local businesses that have started up, taken on equity or debt finance, hear about their journeys and what advice they would give to businesses who are considering their options.
  • Learn where to find further support and useful resources to help them on their business growth journey, and meet the people who can help in the networking session.
