StartUp Britain, A Nationwide Tour Designed To Inspire Would-Be Entrepreneurs


A national campaign that aims to inspire new start-up businesses has embarked on a tour of the North. 

StartUp Britain is a campaign by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, which harnesses the expertise of Britain’s leading businesspeople to celebrate, inspire and accelerate enterprise in the UK. 

The 1966 Routemaster bus will tour 25 locations around England, Wales and Scotland to offer advice from the country’s best business mentors, start-up experts, business IT support professionals and employees from headline sponsors Sage to aspiring entrepreneurs. 

Yesterday in Newcastle mentors from the North East’s Entrepreneurs’ Forum spoke with members of the public about business ideas and of their own experiences, which highlighted that connecting budding entrepreneurs to local organisations can help them to get started in the business world. 

According to the StartUp Britain website, the campaign was founded by eight entrepreneurs and launched on 28 March 2011 by the Prime Minister, with the full support of the Chancellor and HM Government, although it is completely funded by private-sector sponsors. The campaign is now run by the Centre for Entrepreneurs, the entrepreneurs' think tank, enabling them to communicate better policies for entrepreneurs to Government.

“We are truly passionate about promoting entrepreneurship and its benefits to our economy and we do this by highlighting the myriad of support that is available to those who wish to start or grow a business, galvanising support where we see a demand and by acting as a voice for small businesses to Government.”

We think this is an excellent event and we urge potential entrepreneurs from across the UK to attend, you’ll never know what valuable information you might receive! And if anything, it’s a good chance to network with some of the best business minds around.

360ict provides managed IT services and emergency IT support for SMEs in central London and the south-east, including Bromley and Croydon. For more advice on gaining competitive advantage as a mid-sized company, give us a call on 0208 663 4000 or head to our website.
