Go British entrepreneurs, go to StartUp Britain!

If you are sitting at home and thinking of starting your own business, now it itime to do it!

A new scheme is launched for people who are thinking of starting their own businesses. The UK prime minister is to launch this scheme backed by 62 big businesses and organisations in order to encourage small businesses and get the economy going forward.

startupbritain_for_axiatel_blogStartUp Britain is supported by 62 organisations including Google, Barclays, Yell, Regus, Microsoft and eBay and will offer discounted services and initiatives to the 270,000 companies that are started every year. This will include benefits comprising advertising and marketing, office space, broadband, finance and mentoring support.

Organisers say the package of offers is worth £1,500 to every start-up in Britain.

The scheme is supported by eight successful entrepreneurs and includes a website at www.startupbritain.org where business owners can find details of the deals and links to other online resources providing support and advice. 

sme_axiatelThousands of British people watch Dragon’s Den and Sir Alan Sugar’s Apprentice programmes, and eagerly follow the development of other people’s ideas into actions, wanting to hear the success stories. Perhaps many times they were spinning in their heads the “whatifs” and “whynots”, while sitting in their chairs at home, and many times leaving the idea of starting their own small business to themselves. There are thousands of success strories that are not written yet, says David Cameron, while urging people to take the opportunties here and now!

Among the founding members of StartUp Britain is Emma Jones, creator of home business website Enterprise Nation. She said: “StartUp Britain will inspire people to start a business who might not otherwise have considered it. It will celebrate entrepreneurship and accelerate the growth of those start-up businesses that will in turn provide wealth, jobs and entrepreneurial legacy – which are all very much needed in the UK today.”
