Join us for a one off Business Funding Seminar like you've never seen before. Like many industries, business funding is a rapidly changing environment. Surrey Chambers, together with Woking Works, are teaming up with Natwest in order to showcase some of the newest and most innotive funding solutions for SME’s.

From funding tools that plug into your cloud accountancy packages, to fast decision peer to peer lending platforms and IP funding, but not forgetting traditional banking values; come and hear from some of the best in the business about the variety of funding sources available to your organisation.
