Business Secretary Vince Cable has recently outlined the importance of supporting the Business Community and new start-ups:
"Half of all jobs in this country come from small and medium sized business. So if we’re to get our economy going again, we must do all we can to support them.
Many of the measures we’ve focused on so far such as better access to finance, mentoring and scrapping red tape have already helped. There is a record number 4.8 million small businesses in the UK, and the figures have suggested record numbers of start-ups. 5,000 of them are now being backed by our Start Up Loans scheme, which is rolling out rapidly.
We now plan to do more and do it better, by making our schemes and the way we provide advice much simpler."
Business and Enterprise Minister Michael Fallon also said:
We all want faster growth. As Britain recovers, small firms are leading the generation of ideas, creating new jobs and driving enterprise. Whether by encouraging more firms to export or opening up procurement opportunities, government is backing ambitious businesses by giving them the support they need to grow.
It’s important we listen to what small firms want so we make Britain the best place to start, grow and finance a business. This government is on the side of small business and will always back hard-working people who want to get on in life.
