Backing the businesses of tomorrow

We’re the largest supporter of small businesses in the UK, and do all we can to understand the mind-set of entrepreneurs and give them what they need to succeed.

We have just opened three more business accelerator hubs in Brighton, Leeds and Bristol. The hubs are run in partnership with Entrepreneurial Spark and offer aspiring entrepreneurs:

  • free office facilities
  • mentoring
  • start-up ‘boot camp’
  • advice and funding
  • ongoing support.

Our commitment to UK start-ups

Helping aspiring entrepreneurs, start-ups and high-growth businesses achieve their goals is vital but also helps create jobs and support economic growth across the country. That’s why our businesses have recently joined forces on the bank’s entrepreneur strategy to support UK business and communities.
