Business West launches Finance Hub to connect borrowers, lenders and investors

By Anita Jaynes on 29 June, 2020

One of the South West’s most influential business leadership organisations, Business West, has launched a finance hub to help businesses faced with an increasingly complex lending landscape to decide what sort of finance options work best for them before they consult an investor or lender.

With business finances pushed to breaking point as a result of lockdown, the Business West Finance Hub provides an impartial and unbiased information and signposting service.

Business West Finance Hub is a comprehensive resource for South West businesses, laying out in a straightforward and easy to understand way the funding options that are available and how to access them.

Business West’s access to finance specialist Ed Tellwright works alongside innovative companies to help them secure the finances needed to fund business growth and expansion. He said, “From crowdfunding and venture capital to the range of new government finance options available due to COVID-19, the marketplace for business finance is complex and confusing. 

“Choosing the right financial option when considering a new venture, acquiring stock or a capital investment can be complicated, and many businesses often end up with the wrong financial solution which is not entirely right for them in the short, medium or long term.

“Responding to this need, we have launched the Business West Finance Hub to help guide businesses and point them in the right direction, by answering key questions regarding finance options, eligibility for schemes and applications, as well as providing detailed information on how to access less mainstream forms of finance such as peer to peer lending.

“The Business West Finance Hub provides honest and impartial business advice minus the confusing jargon or hard sell. 

“With many businesses’ finances now on a knife-edge due to COVID-19, a resource like this from a trusted source such as Business West is needed now more than ever.”
