SME survey to select businesses to help develop a new Government website

The British Business Bank, a Government owned business development bank dedicated to making finance markets work better for smaller businesses, has commissioned Engine Group to design and build a new online facility for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). This facility will provide information to help SMEs choose the finance options best suited to them.  This work is at an early design stage, and we are seeking SME views to design a site best tailored to your needs.

This survey will only take 3 minutes to complete. The purpose of this survey is to identify a group of SMEs who will be contacted again to take part in either a website development session held in central London, or to provide views on the website via an online exercise.

We appreciate you taking time to complete this survey. If you would like to verify the authenticity of this survey, please contact Asad Ghani at the British Business Bank on 0203 7772 1389. If you are selected to take part in a website development session or online exercise, Engine Group will contact you.
