Who we are
We're a government-owned Economic Development Bank, managed independently.
Working closely with the finance sector and entrepreneurs, we strive to make finance markets work better - so businesses in the UK can survive, thrive, and grow.
The business finance market doesn't always provide favourable conditions for success.
But that's where we come in: inspiring others and equipping them with the knowledge they need to find their own path to success.
We provide improved access to financing, supply useful information and tools, and build strong regional networks - helping shape a brighter future for numerous small businesses across the UK.
