Episode 79,  Apr 28, 2020, 06:00 AM

The government has introduced measures to help SMEs through the lock down measures in place due to Covid-19, but is it enough and where else can early stage founders turn for support in this extremely uncertain time? 

The UK Business Angels Association is backing a campaign for action to save startups so that we don’t lose a generation of fledging businesses to Covid-19.  

Trish co-hosts this episode with UKBAA CEO Jenny Tooth OBE to explore what more can be done to help the next generation of businesses to survive.  
They're joined by angel investor Nick Bate to find out how he is helping startups, what other angels are doing to save small businesses and how other potential investors can get involved.
