You don’t need us to tell you that these are exceptionally difficult times for UK SMEs. Collectively we all recognise that the number one priority for growth finance providers is to dig deep and do everything they can to help as many businesses as possible.
Because of this, we have chosen to postpone this year’s Growth Finance Awards, and have stopped taking entries in all our award categories. Now is not the time to be championing growth and celebrating success. Instead, we believe everyone’s attention should be focused on giving UK smaller businesses the resources they need to endure and emerge stronger next year.
This is certainly not the end of the story for the Growth Finance Awards. We look forward to returning bigger and better in 2021, sharing inspiring stories of how our community played its part in restarting the UK economy.
Thank you for your continued support and valued contribution to growth finance in the UK.
Guy Tolhurst and all the team
