Charity Hosts Leicester Business Festival Event for Aspiring Business Owners

The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity (STW) hosted its first-ever event for aspiring business owners at Friars Mill on Wednesday 31 October, forming part of the 2018 Leicester Business Festival.

‘Challenges and Triumphs of Business Start-Up’ allowed delegates to hear first-hand accounts of the journey experienced by two young business owners within Leicester, in addition to accessing insightful information regarding business planning, creating a financial forecast and the interest-free financial support available through The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity.

Speaking at the event were business loan borrowers and STW ambassadors, Hannah Myatt – owner of Skytribe Dance Studio, and Lee Tomes, who owns Orange Fox Productions.

In addition to helping people across Leicestershire and Rutland start a business from scratch, The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity also makes its interest-free business loans available to people wishing to develop their business; something that borrower Hannah Myatt was able to do.

Provided that the business has been running for four years or less and that an applicant meets the other necessary criteria, the Charity’s investment of up to £20,000 is on offer.

Hannah, a dancer and dance teacher, set up her studio – Skytribe – with the help of a small loan, but later found that additional work was required to bring the premises up to the standards she desired – which is where The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity came in.
