The Leap 100 have fallen out of love with British banks

City AM has today published the latest Leap 100 poll and insight, this time asking The Leap 100 companies about borrowing. The Leap 100 are some of the UK's most exciting companies as identified by Mishcon de Reya in partnership with City AM, The Supper Club and The Entrepreneurs Network.

The poll includes questions such as: have you struggled to access sufficient funding to finance the growth of your business? And, are UK businesses overly fixated on debt financing to fund their growth? The responses, along with an article by Mishcon de Reya Partner Nadim Meer on the UK's equity finance markets, can be accessed via the links below.

This coverage follows yesterday's 2015 Summit, The Future of Growth, where Mishcon de Reya's Director of Business Development, Elliot Moss, interviewed two founders of The Leap 100 companies - Sara Murray OBE, of Buddi and Ed Bussey of Quill Content - on the biggest challenges they have faced in growing their businesses, and how the entrepreneurial culture in Britain has changed over the past decade.

Europe is green with envy at our vibrant markets for equity finance
