UK Business Funding Show (BFS) is a series of events bringing together high-potential SMEs and leading financial institutions to ensure the UK’s business growth.

The Business Funding Show FEB 2017

Brought together high-potential SMEs and leading financial institutions to ensure the UK’s business growth.

BFS’17 allowed the UK entrepreneurs to meet and connect with a number of Investors and Lenders. It was also a unique opportunity to develop a highly valuable network for potential partnerships.

The Investment Clinics were the novelty for this year, where entrepreneurs had the chance to meet on a one-to-one basis with Top VCs and get highly valuable advice.

We plan on BFS ’18 being bigger and better! Join us on February 22nd, 2018, by exhibiting or attending. Click the button below for more information!

Business Sherper“We would highly recommend any business looking for high quality leads should not hesitate exhibiting at the Business Funding Show. Exhibiting at similar shows can be time wasters, this was not the case of BFS; in fact we filled and secure 10x of our investment within a week!”

Rockstar Hubs“Once again, great job with the Show Arina and well done on a great day!”

BBB“Thank you for organising another great event!
We really enjoyed attending and picked up useful contacts.

Bots“Everything was so well organised and worked flawlessly and the location couldn’t be more suitable!

Attending BFS 2017 was a true eye opener for us. It was actually the first time we seriously talked to potentially investors about Bo and BotsAndUs.

It gave us such a great confidence and energy boost and opened doors to some very interesting collaborations.”

gill-wallace-hope“Great show. We loved it!”

gill-wallace-hope“The discussions were of good quality and were also well facilitated. BFS staff was supportive and professional at all the times.”

“People often criticise me for being overly serious and lacking humour and being very direct. These are the same “qualities” that Arina has!
She did however manage to cheer me up immensely at the Show by putting on the singular best event I have ever been involved in when measured on a potential ROI basis.”

“Great event!
I would really like to be kept informed of up-coming events and opportunities.

 This event had an impressive line up of speakers from top equity crowdfunding platforms. They merited a larger audience than the three dozen or so of us who made it along. Very glad I was there.
