Election Fever & The Startup

7th June 2017

Election fever has begun but what should the next Government be considering in relation to the lifeblood of the future economy - the startup?

We all know startups are the backbone of the country, we’ve heard it plenty of times. But we need the elected Government to consider their importance right now and the impact these businesses could have on the future of this country.  We need to be looking at the potential of seed capital and a UK Government support programme to find those ‘diamonds in the rough’ which will support the UKs new startups once election fever dies down and we press on with Brexit and strengthening the UK economy.  

An entrepreneur might have creativity, ideas and motivation to push forward with a new business but with a lack of experience, leadership, management skills and cash flow, are they setting up to fall at the first hurdle?  Probably, and that is why greater recognition and support is needed for entrepreneurs and new businesses in this country.  I would like to see a firm indication that the elected Government intends to better support start up businesses to help remove those potential weaknesses.
