We’re giving small businesses the chance to win half a day of business advice with Piers Linney, the former Dragons’ Den investor.
Latest Government figures show that smaller businesses which seek external advice or information are between 15% and 25% more likely to become high growth firms.
Yet 81% sought no advice when applying for external finance last year.
The entrepreneur and Non-Executive Director of British Business Bank will visit the winning business and give them a consultation session on how to grow their business.
To win, tell us why your business needs advice from Piers and any growth ambitions you have for your business.
“Starting, scaling and running a business does not need to be a lonely journey. There is lots of advice and support available for those that know where to look. Having run many successful businesses, I know first-hand the importance of getting the right support. I look forward to sharing my expertise with the winning business and being part of their growth story”
Piers Linney, Non-Executive Director at British Business Bank
The competition closes at 11:59pm on 30 September.
Entries are limited to UK-based businesses with no more than 250 employees. Full terms and conditions can be downloaded here.
The winning entrant will be notified by Friday 11 October 2019.
