Beyond banks:

How British SMEs can overcome barriers to growth, and plan for success

What we do

We love helping businesses grow. Growing businesses can be misunderstood by traditional finance providers. We’re trying to change that.

Our research

Because we love helping businesses grow, we wanted to find out about some of the barriers to growth Britain’s SMEs are facing. This white paper is the end result.

In our research for this project, we surveyed more than 1,000 British businesses employing more than 10 staff. Our respondents’ opinions, on topics as diverse as the alternative finance landscape and guidance on international exports, make for fascinating reading.
