The Growth Finance Awards bring the industry together to celebrate individual achievements and the overall contribution that growth finance makes to UK economic growth.
“The Growth Finance community is so important in enabling our SMEs throughout the UK to grow and scale up. As Small Business Minister I’m committed to working with the Growth Finance community in order to support innovation in products and services that are there to truly assist our SME community.”
“These awards celebrate the important work finance providers are doing to increase access to finance for smaller businesses across the UK.”
“The business banking experience for SMEs has changed profoundly in the past 10 years, and the companies celebrated in this event can take some of the credit for that”.
“Making finance an attractive place to work in the aftermath of the financial crisis is an impressive achievement. This event recognises companies that continue to attract top talent.”
“The Growth Finance Awards shine a spotlight on the true innovation taking place in the UK’s world-beating financial services sector. Celebrating stand-out finance providers is essential to ensuring that SMEs up and down the country get the support they need.”
“As a proud sponsor of this landmark event, we’re really pleased to see growth finance providers getting the recognition they deserve for their positive impact on the UK’s real economy.”
“These awards recognise the increasing significance of peer-to-peer lenders for SMEs. It’s a fast-changing sector that has thrown up challenges and opportunities as new technology fundamentally changes the way finance works.”
“It’s essential to recognise how the smart use of finance can help SMEs to grow and achieve their ambitions. Adempi is a proud sponsor of this event and I hope that the growth finance community continues to go from strength to strength.”
“The Growth Finance Awards support ambitious companies by signposting the top providers of capital to growing businesses. As the trade association for angel and early-stage investors, the UKBAA is also a supporter of the UK’s SMEs, and is glad to be supporting this exciting new initiative.”
“Invoice Finance is an excellent funding option for many companies, and particularly fast growing businesses where the facility can increase in line with sales. Innovative lenders have driven Invoice Finance to high levels of sophistication and user satisfaction and it can be an integral part of the funding mix for companies large and small. I wish all these finalists the best of luck.”
“Beauhurst is the leading source of information on the UK’s innovative and fast-growth companies. The growth finance providers celebrated by this event help the companies Beauhurst tracks to succeed every day.”
“Peer2Peer Finance News has been following the industry closely since we launched in 2016. The growth of digital lending in that short time has been awe-inspiring and I’m pleased that this event shines a spotlight on that progress.”
“Intelligent direct lenders can offer a wide range of products to suit the needs of growing businesses and – if funded by IFISA bond retail investors – may also be the cheapest solution for entrepreneurial SMEs. That’s why I’m delighted to sponsor the ‘Direct Lending Platform of the Year’ award.”
“Entrepreneurs are vital to the UK economy and finding the right partners is essential for a growing company.“
“The Growth Finance Awards rightly celebrate the diverse business finance landscape now available to SMEs. Ensuring businesses get the right finance for them, at the right time, is critical. UK Finance members continue to approve over 80 per cent of finance applications and despite an uncertain economic backdrop, help support resilient businesses to grow and thrive.”
