Potential Funding Options for SMEs to Be Outlined at Chamber Breakfast

Funding a business is a key concern for all business owners at the varying stage of business development and growth. Whilst the local bank was, and still is, the first stop for many companies, there are many new funding options now available and this will be explained at a business breakfast organised by Shannon Chamber in conjunction with financial advisors Key Capital who are significantly experienced in corporate finance and in advising indigenous and international companies on fiscal matters.

The breakfast briefing, which is open to businesses of all sizes and at varying stages of growth, will take place next Wednesday, 13 September at the Oakwood Hotel in Shannon from 8am to 9:30am, commencing with registration at 7:40am.

Key Capital’s Jonathan Dalton, head of corporate finance and Tero Tiilikainen, director of corporate finance, will outline the various forms of capital on offer to Irish SMEs today, from non-bank debt to private equity, and everything in between, and provide valuable insights into how best to navigate the new financial landscape.

Shannon Chamber chief executive Helen Downes speaking ahead of the event said: “The evolution of Irish capital markets continues at pace, with new players and new forms of capital entering the market seemingly every day. This is good news for Irish SMEs seeking to raise funds to expand a business, acquire a competitor, or de-risk a closely held company by ‘taking money off the table’. This will be a very insightful event for companies seeking to raise capital for their business.”
