Small Business Advice Week launches to support SMEs

IN: Business news

This week, SMEs across the country have the opportunity to learn from some of the leading minds in enterprise with the launch of Small Business Advice Week, an initiative sponsored by the Federation of Small Businesses.

The programme, which is in its tenth year, provides the 4.8 million small businesses currently operating in the UK with best practice advice in regards to running a company. The initiative, which takes place over the first week in September, offers insight from a variety of leading organisations, supplying SMEs with useful techniques, ranging from alternative business finance to online marketing. 

Speaking about the initiative, Phil Browne, an organiser of Small Business Advice Week 2013, said:

"We've had five years of economic hardship, but despite some financial experts telling us how they're starting to see tentative signs of recovery, it's not rocket science to see how the average small business is still finding life incredibly tough.

"Our aim is to provide as much information as possible and to as many businesses as possible too."

Aldermore has consistently stressed the importance of SMEs to UK economic growth, highlighting the vital contribution small businesses make to employment levels and exports. The Bank is delighted to help support the initiative.
