ABOUT

 

The Growth Finance Awards will be the first event of its kind dedicated to recognising the role of the finance community in supporting SME growth ambitions in the UK.

 

We’ll present 18 prestigious awards to recognise those offering more than finance. Over 400 guests will celebrate the industry at a black-tie dinner at the prestigious Royal Lancaster Hotel on Wednesday September 11.

ABOUT THE ORGANISER:
INTELLIGENT PARTNERSHIP

At Intelligent Partnership we’re passionate about small businesses. We know that they are a vital part of the economy: creating jobs, developing new products, opening up new markets and fuelling regional growth.

For these reasons, we want to play our part in promoting the SME sector, and in particular highlighting the finance and support available to small companies. We want to encourage more people to start their own businesses. And we want to encourage more small businesses to secure finance, scale up and become great businesses.

We’re doing this by providing education and insights on this market; by working with trade associations and government to develop better-quality market information; by recognising best practice among finance providers and professionals that support the SME community; by championing success stories, and by carrying out research to provide market intelligence for finance providers.

 

 

“The UK’s SME community has embraced all forms of growth finance to excel and expand, but its impact is rarely recognised.

“That’s why we’re celebrating the providers and champions of growth finance that are contributing ‘more than finance’ to help businesses scale to even greater heights.”

THE GROWTH INVESTOR AWARDS

Recognising ‘impact beyond investment’, these awards highlight the value delivered to investors, businesses and the UK economy by investment providers, wealth managers, financial advisers, corporate investors, angel syndicates, investment platforms, and entrepreneurs.

The hugely successful and highly respected Growth Investor Awards, now in its fifth year, is also organised by Intelligent Partnership and supported by a family of sponsors and partners.

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.”
STEPHEN JONES
CEO, UK Finance

 

Together we’ll celebrate the businesses innovating in financial services, creating jobs, nurturing talent, boosting productivity and fuelling regional expansion.
