Want to finance the next stage of your business growth and not sure where to start?

The Access to Finance event in Croydon can point you in the right direction.

Whether you are starting up or looking to take an established business to the next level, do not miss this free morning organised by the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership in partnership with London Borough of Croydon Council.

Hosted by leading by leading city investment expert and media commentator Justin Urquhart-Stewart, Access to Finance will offer information on all types of funding opportunities for all stages of business at expert-led panel discussions, seminars and one to one advice clinics.

Malcolm Brabon, head of services at Coast to Capital commented: "Justin has a keen interest in developing the investment market to break down as many of the traditional barriers as possible for both private investors and smaller companies.

"The Access to Finance event offers a unique opportunity for business people to get clear, straightforward information on all the types of funding that are available."

Access to Finance will be held from 9.30am to 1.30pm on Friday, 10th February at The Clocktower in Katharine Street, Croydon.

Councillor Mark Watson, Croydon Council cabinet member for economy and jobs, said: "Accessing finance to grow a business can be a confusing and difficult process and I am delighted we are working with Coast to Capital to support this event.

"Providing local business owners with vital information about the funding opportunities available will not only enable them to further develop their businesses, but also builds the foundation for future business growth, which in turn will boost Croydon's economy."

Having Justin Urquhart-Stewart as event host is a coup for the organisers. As director and co-founder of Seven Investment Management, Justin now manages and administers around £5.2 billion on behalf of professional financial wealth managers and intermediaries.

His investment management business innovated the UK investment market with the introduction of the first Sterling Investment Wrap Account.

Justin was previously involved in the original development of the AIM market and the investor educational company, Proshare.

He writes regularly for national magazines and newspapers, and is a frequent commentator on television and radio, both in the UK and abroad and was voted 'Best Industry Commentator 2012' at the City of London Wealth Management awards.
