Business Views

BVA BDRC and Alligator bring you 'Business Views': weekly insights, via our community of SMEs, as 'Britain gets back to work'.

Business Views will take you behind the scenes as lockdown eases. How do businesses see the world? How might their business model need to adapt? Which suppliers and advisors will remain essential? Which relationships are being reassessed?

SMEs are the engine room of the UK economy however 7 in 10 have been impacted by the coronavirus crisis. Our research also shows that:

Most expect their business will survive the crisis, but they are rapidly losing confidence in the Government
Many are looking to Christmas or early 2021 for any likelihood of trading that is close to ‘normal’
Resilience stems from an ability to adapt and finding new ways of working, which is likely to have consequences for their suppliers and service providers

Stay on the front foot in this evolving context by subscribing to the Business Views community: weekly insight from an ‘always on, rapid response’ panel of entrepreneurs and business decision-makers.
