RBS and Natwest have announced the launch of a free-to-use online business supplier community, entitled BizCrowd, designed to complement the banks traditional SME services.

Suppliers in the Advertising and PR sector are now being invited to sign-up to BizCrowd and pitch for service requirements posted by other UK businesses, or post their own.

Open to all UK businesses and free to join and use, RBS and Natwest hope that BizCrowd will encourage collaboration between British SMEs. The website will assist SMEs in building their online profiles as well as generating new business leads and acting as a resource for customers looking for trusted suppliers.

CEO corporate banking, RBS and NatWest, Chris Sullivan, commented: “It has always been the role of the bank manager to connect British businesses to one another, now we’re extending that support online. We hope Bizcrowd helps as many SMEs as possible raise their profile and win new business.”

Supplier registrations are now open for a wide range of sectors from media and creative industries, to recruitment, construction and venues and events. The peer-to-peer business community is equipped with a feedback mechanism allowing suppliers to be rated and recommended by others in the community.
