University of Surrey School of Management

Recently Surrey Business School co-hosted the Access to Funding Forum with the Surrey Chambers of Commerce. Now in its third year, the event brought together business experts and local enterprises to build new funding relationships. Past participants have included Metro Bank, Santander, Crowdfunder, NatWest, UK Export Finance and the FSE Group.

Bhaskar Basgupta, COO of UK Export Finance (UKEF), the UK export credit agency, delivered the keynote address on the funding challenges and opportunities in the export sector, and was followed by panel discussions about business funding and a networking reception where representatives from local companies could meet with funders.

Bhaskar said: “I was delighted to speak at the Access to Funding Forum 2017. At UK Export Finance, we know that  nding the right  nance and insurance can make all the difference to a business looking to succeed and grow, so it is great to see Surrey Business School working with Surrey Chamber of Commerce to support local businesses in these important choices.”

The forum will return next year, with an open invitation for business delegates.

Surrey Business School does run similar event thorough out the year, bringing together experts and enterprises to build an understanding of the rapidly evolving current business landscape.
