Presenting our Restart Capital campaign and survey results – private investment is the answer
We are delighted to present to you the results of our Restart Capital survey. The survey (of over 500 SMEs and 100 investors) confirmed to us some brutal realities.
We expected SMEs to confirm difficulties but we did not think that 35% of SMEs would expect to be out of business within the next 12 months.
However, it also confirmed what we saw as the solution. We expected investors to feel robust but were pleasantly surprised that 95% had not seen a significant drop in overall assets. And matching the money to the business? Both SMEs and investors liked all of our 16 ideas for government policy changes designed to help the flow of funds.
