Business Bytes Cork - New ways to finance your business

SFA Business Bytes, with the support of Bord Gáis Energy, offer unparalleled access to a wide range of high quality training events which are entirely free of change to attend.

Access to finance has been a barrier to growth in many small firms in recent years. Even as the economy has improved, it has been termed a ‘creditless’ recovery. This seminar brought together a range of experts to introduce financing options that businesses may not have considered. They provided advice on how to choose the right mix for your business, key questions to ask and tips on how to apply.

Opportunities to secure finance for capital expenditure and working capital were explored, with a particular focus on:

  • MicroFinance Ireland
  • The Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland (SBCI)
  • Trade finance
  • Stock finance
  • Invoice discounting


This seminar was aimed both at business owners seeking new ways to finance their business and at accountants and professional advisers.
