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.
Piers Linney, 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 company.
To win, tell us why your business needs advice from Piers and any growth ambitions you have for your organisation.
“Starting, scaling and running a business does not need to be a lonely journey,” Piers said. “There’s 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.”
The competition closes at 11:59pm on 30 September 2019.
Entries are limited to UK-based businesses with no more than 250 employees. You can download full terms and conditions here.
We will notify the winning entrant by Friday 11 October 2019.
