Accelerate 250 sees thousands of UK entrepreneurs gather to learn from the brains behind Britain's fastest growing businesses.

This year, Aldermore will be there to hear first-hand about the challenges and opportunities for SMEs in the current economic climate.

Taking place in Liverpool's Arena and Convention Centre, Accelerate 250 represents an opportunity for SMEs to gain insight from the 'vital 6 per cent' of companies that are driving half of the UK's job creation. Featuring a combination of guest speakers, panel discussions and practical workshops, the event allows SMEs to come together and share their experience on a number of topics, from access to funding to expansion and international trade.

Aldermore will be attending the conference to hear what the minds behind Britain's biggest entrepreneurial success stories have to say. An inspirational line-up of speakers, including Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, Betfair's Edward Wray and Co-founder Martha Lane Fox , will be there to offer their wisdom, which Aldermore hopes to pass on to the Bank's SME community through social media coverage during the day.

Government enterprise advisor Lord Young, School for Start-ups founder Doug Richard and financial journalist Robert Peston will also be offering their expertise on the issues affecting SMEs.

The conference is also a way for the Bank's senior team to communicate with small business owners on a personal level. Speaking to SMEs enables the Bank to find out more about what Britain's businesses expect from the financial sector, allowing Aldermore to continue to develop products and services to best meet the needs of its customers.

Live events like Accelerate 250 are an invaluable way for Aldermore to connect with homeowners, savers and SMEs on a more personal level, personifying the Bank's dedication to better banking relationships. In fact, alongside the Accelerate 250 event, Aldermore will also be attending both the NACFB Commercial Finance Expo and Landlord and Letting Show in the same week, demonstrating the Bank's commitment to creating closer ties with its customers.
