There are 4.7 million enterprises in the UK and 99% of these are Small or Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs) who are looking for support to grow more intensively in their local areas. In recognition of the importance of SMEs to local communities, Santander are involved in a series of partnerships and initiatives at Business in the Community (BITC) aimed at encouraging a sustainable approach to business, nurturing new talent and supporting community enterprise.
From experience we know that large businesses have the capacity to support or sometimes hinder smaller businesses. In Manchester, there are some great examples of where support has worked well – but it is essential for our future economic prosperity that we explore this further and examine what works best and can be easily scaled up.
Chaired by Mike Blackburn, Regional Director at BT - this free Enterprise Inquiry aims to share this best practice as well as identify new opportunities available to large and small businesses.
