Media Release: IoD event examines finance options for SME growth

FINDING funding to grow SME businesses in Scotland is the focus of IoD Aberdeen’s networking lunch on Wednesday (March 21).

The speaker is Jock Gardiner, who leads the team responsible for Maven Capital Partners investments in the north and east of Scotland, as well as their energy sector investments across the UK.
