Bradford Metro Bank Hosts Local Start-Up Business Adviser

21st May 2023

Bradford Metro Bank will host Bradford’s Local Start-Up Business Adviser Katrina Moody at its Market Street Store on Wednesday June 7th from 1pm – 4pm.

There were over three quarters of a million (753,158) new companies created in the UK last year – the second highest number on record. That’s more than one company every minute. However start-ups are vulnerable and whilst just over nine out of ten survive the first year (92%), just over a third make it to year five and beyond.

Any Bradford business that is less than three years old is welcome to meet Katrina who can provide practical support, as well as advice and guidance to any start-up business from any sector, including social enterprises, cooperatives and businesses selling directly to consumers.

As an independent adviser, Katrina can also help individuals with an idea for a new business or support growth for existing businesses, including business planning, marketing, and financial management.

“Anyone is welcome to come along for free advice and support about starting or managing a new business,” explains Bradford Metro Bank’s Local Business Manager Lizzie Jowett. “Whilst in store, if you have not yet opened a business account, this can be done in store in under two hours, with your internet banking set-up the same day and your debit card printed in store.’’

To guarantee time with Katrina at this complimentary event please reserve your spot here.

Metro Bank’s Bradford store can be found at 5 Market Street, Bradford, West Yorkshire BD1 1EG. The store is open Monday – Saturday: 8.30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm. Bradford Metro Bank is also part of the Safe Space scheme – the store is available to anyone experiencing, or at risk of domestic abuse, providing the opportunity to safely call a helpline, support service or loved one.
