About

Our aim is to make finance markets work better for small businesses in the UK at all stages of their development: starting up, scaling up and staying ahead.

Our Objectives:

  • We will increase the supply of finance available to smaller businesses where markets don’t work well.
  • We will help to create a more diverse finance market for smaller businesses, with a greater choice of options and providers.
  • We will encourage and enable SMEs to seek the finance best suited to their needs.
  • We will achieve this whilst managing taxpayer resources efficiently and within a robust risk management framework.
  • We will be the centre of expertise on smaller business finance in the UK, providing advice and support to Government.
  • We will identify and help to reduce imbalances in access to finance for smaller businesses across the UK.

The British Business Bank is 100% Government owned, but independently managed. It brings expertise and Government money to the smaller business finance markets. We don’t lend or invest directly. Instead we work with over 100 partners such as banks, leasing companies, venture capital funds and web-based platforms.

Finance options for business

For growing businesses, there’s a finance option out there to match your ambition. We help you understand what external finance is, what options are available and how they could help your business.
