StartUp Britain Launches Business Network in Birmingham
Victoria Square in Birmingham.
In response to the Government’s call for an ‘enterprise-led’ recovery of the UK’s economy, StartUp Britain was born – an initiative designed to inspire and support new and growing businesses in the UK, which comes with full backing from the Prime Minister David Cameron, the Chancellor and HM Government.
The scheme was launched in March 2011 by a team of established entrepreneurs, each of whom run their own successful business(es) and have come together to provide their own advice for aspiring business owners.
Among those behind the initiative is Jamie Murray Wells – founder and Executive Chairman of internet retailer Glasses Direct, Rajeeb Dey – founder and CEO of Enternships.com, and author Emma Jones – who is also the founder of small business support company Enterprise Nation, among others.
The Birmingham event has been formed to help people who want to start their own business in Birmingham, or those who are looking to grow their existing business and reach a bigger client base. It will take place at Victoria Square on Tuesday 23rd August and will mark the first full-day session in a series of StartUp events planned across the country.
According to TheBusinessDesk, Joel Graham-Blake, founder of DEN, said:
“As an entrepreneur, I know what it is like not to receive the right support when you need it most, but I truly believe that Birmingham is a diverse city full of creative and ambitious people who face challenges with self-belief and passion and positively impact the economy of the region.”
