TERMS OF USE.

Policy last updated January 6, 2019

 

Our mission is to help businesses across the UK access business support and funding that is widely available but not easily found. We also aim to support government funded initiatives with delivery of business support services and work with private sector businesses such as banks, accounting software developers, insurers etc to reach the business community. Added to this our platform will help businesses stay connected and build a joined up UK business support network.
