iwoca and Enterprise Nation partner to help small businesses Go and Grow online

The Go and Grow online initiative is a series of five events held from September to the end of the year, tailor-made to empower small businesses.

With over 300,000 online retailers operating in the UK, iwoca, a provider of short- term finance to ecommerce traders, believes it’s important to equip businesses with relevant skills to help them expand.

Popping up at Club Workspace Bankside in London, the free-to-attend events will help small businesses with everything from choosing a template site provider to social media marketing and turning online browsers into buyers.

Each event will see a panel of entrepreneurs and experts offer their advice and tell their stories so small businesses can learn the tools and techniques they need to make the most of online commerce.

Christoph Rieche, CEO & Co-founder at iwoca, commented:

“We are delighted to be supporting this event series which will inform as well as inspire. We meet many small businesses looking to make a start online and others who are after advice on how to maximise existing sales through entering new markets or promoting their business on the web.”
