Bulletin

Next stop, being your own boss

Some 581,000 new companies were created last year and 2015 is expected to be another record-breaking year, with over 600,000 expected to launch. StartUp Britain, a government-backed national enterprise campaign, will kick off its fourth national tour today, aimed at providing inspiration and support to aspiring entrepreneurs. The campaign was launched in March 2011 to raise awareness of entrepreneurship, in response to the government's call for an 'enterprise led' recovery after the recession. This year's StartUp Britain tour will visit 25 locations across England, Wales and Scotland over the next couple of months, starting in London and ending in Inverness on August 8. Budding entrepreneurs will get lessons in how to build a sales team, a crash course in common pitfalls and how to export their goods and services outside Britain. The campaign is being run by the Centre for Entrepreneurs.
