Andrea Reynolds, CEO of Swoop

On Tuesday 31 March UMi is teaming up with credit experts Swoop to discuss the different ways you can protect your businesses financial help during these turbulent times.

The spotlight is very much on looking after our personal health right now. But as a business owner, you have a responsibility to protect your company’s financial health too. 

This is where Swoop comes in. As a platform created to match businesses with funding across equity, grants and loans, and to identify and easily make savings, Swoop is ideally placed to help at this difficult time.

The Government’s Coronavirus Business Interruption Loans Scheme (CBILS) has been launched, but eligibility criteria are inconsistent, and there is pressure on banks to relax their requirements for the loans. But this is still being worked on. And if you don’t fit the eligibility criteria, what other options are there for you? From Start-up loans regional grants, there’s an abundance of support available which you may not even be aware of.

And more crucially, you don’t just have to sit and wait for the government to get itself organised. There are other measures, such as instantly identifying £1000s in savings across everyday costs such as banking, foreign exchange, and utilities, enabling you to tighten your belt straight away.

Andrea Reynolds, CEO of Swoop, will be joined by Tom Brock, Fund Director of UMi Debt Finance Scotland, and UMi Project Advisor, Lesley Stothart. Together they will share their expertise, insights and straight-talking, sensible advice on how to protect the financial health of your business now and into the future.
