Join the British Business Bank on Wednesday 17 November 2021 from 15.00 – 16:15 for a virtual event celebrating our Start Up Loans Ambassadors 2021, twelve exceptional small business owners from communities across the UK.  Hear from:

  • Lord Smith, Chair of the British Business Bank, about the importance of small businesses to the UK’s economic success.
  • A leading business entrepreneur sharing insights on starting and running your own business.
  • A panel with some of our former Ambassadors about pivoting their businesses during the pandemic with lessons learned and practical advice.
  • The session will culminate in an opportunity to join a regional breakout session to hear more from your region’s Ambassador and have your say about the small business landscape in your region and how the British Business Bank can best help.

Start Up Loans was established in September 2012 to help new and early-stage businesses in the UK access affordable finance and mentoring support.

Now in its sixth consecutive year, our ambassador programme celebrates twelve champion business owners from across the UK who have followed an ambition of becoming their own boss after receiving support from the Start Up Loans programme.
