BGF launches Ready for Business
BGF has launched Ready for Business – a new campaign advocating for continued support for entrepreneurs and investment in a time of uncertainty. As part of the campaign, BGF has published its Ready for Business report, featuring proprietary research into UK SMEs. The findings revealed that a high-potential group of more than 13,000 companies have experienced combined revenue growth of £44 billion and collectively employ over 2.5m people.
Stephen Welton, CEO of BGF, said: “This group of businesses has made a huge contribution to the UK, both economically and through ideas and innovation, development, employment and international relationships.
“Revenue growth like this, generated in such an unpredictable landscape, is a significant indicator of activity, productivity and progress.
“Right now, these businesses face unprecedented times and, with all eyes on Brexit, the rationale for deploying more growth capital is to my mind, palpable.
“BGF is match fit to weather this storm with the investment firepower and determination to forge ahead with an enhanced commitment to business. We believe in the power of business and recognise the major and genuine impact that unlocking capital to accelerate growth can have on industry, the economy and society.”
