About Us

Small Business Finance is a website for businesses seeking information and guidance on how to finance their business.  The Irish Banking Federation and Chambers Ireland have partnered to create Small Business Finance one-stop information source for small businesses that will provide access to all the information they need to finance their business.  The website will be a valuable, ongoing resource for all types of small businesses, including entrepreneurs, start-ups, established businesses and exporters.

We provide information and tools to help small businesses that need finance.  We do not provide finance ourselves nor can we assist businesses in accessing finance.

Chambers Ireland

Chambers Ireland

Chambers Ireland is Ireland’s largest business network creating the best environment for members locally, regionally and nationally.  It is a company limited by guarantee, owned by its member chambers, which pay an annual membership subscription fee.

A chamber of commerce is an organisation made up of local business representatives who join together to promote the economic and social development of their community in order to make it a better place in which to live, work and do business.

Chambers vary in size and may be staffed or operated on a voluntary basis. All chambers will have a president at the helm but not all have a chief executive. Volunteer chambers have an honorary council that runs the chamber in its spare time. For more information on Chambers Ireland, please visit their website.
