Your Business ezine got wind of Nicola Horlick's latest speaking engagement, aimed at the financial community and the exciting, innovative world of alternative finance. The Money&Co. CEO was the keynote speaker at FD Solutions' finance seminar on 26th June. Money & Co. recently announced its first £1 million crowdfunding loan secured on behalf of a client.
Nicola said: "I am delighted to address the FD Solutions finance seminar. Awareness of the various sources of finance is still too low among small and medium-sized businesses, and events such as this are key to making sure that businesses know where to go for finance. The record-breaking £1m loan we helped raise shows that alternative finance is a real force to be reckoned with."
Howard Jackson, MD of FD Solutions (for more on the company, click here), said: "We're increasingly involved with crowd-funding and peer-to-peer lending in supporting business growth in the UK. Both are becoming an accepted part of the financial landscape. This is a great opportunity for business leaders to hear first-hand about how crowd-funding has evolved into a real alternative to traditional financing for companies."
