Through the Cumbria Business Finance Network we are hoping to accumulate the feedback of local borrowers and investors in the area of small business finance. This feedback will be used to inform the design of a financial mechanism, the Cumbria Business Investment Fund, which it is hoped will provide a practical and focused conduit for local small business finance – something which will both complement and expand existing provision.

In order to streamline the process of information consolidation, we have provided two standard web forms, one for borrowers and one for investors, which can be accessed by following the links below.

In each case, please feel free to provide as much or as little information as you are comfortable with at this stage.

Thank you very much for taking the time to contribute to the network – we hope that your feedback will help us to return with a proposal which addresses some of the real needs and desires of the local business community.
