Business news headlines are often dominated by large public firms, yet it is usually SME’s that provide some of the most exciting growth stories.
There are around 5.5 million SME’s in the UK, accounting for 99.9% of private sector business. Now consider that a study conducted by Albion Ventures found that one in five of these businesses cited cash flow as a ‘major challenge to growth’ for small businesses.
