IGNITE your…. Future Champions
Presenter – Laura Smith, Policy Adviser at Confederation of British Industry (CBI) will present the CBI’s report:
“Future Champions: unlocking growth in the UK's medium-sized businesses”.
Medium-sized businesses are the UK's "forgotten army", too long overlooked by government but with the potential to inject between £20bn and £50bn into the economy by 2020, according to the CBI.
The CBI is calling for a broader range of finance to be made available to medium-sized businesses. With banks' lending constrained, these firms can no longer rely solely on bank lending for long-term growth capital to invest in their companies.
The CBI is the UK's leading business organisation, speaking for some 240,000 businesses that together employ around a third of the private sector workforce. With offices across the UK as well as representation in Brussels, Washington, Beijing and Delhi the CBI communicates the British business voice around the world.
