The Government’s plans to support small and medium-sized businesses through a new funds package will help, while Global Entrepreneurship has been celebrated in a series of events aimed at highlighting the importance of those visionaries among us while encouraging people to start their own ventures.
The crucial role that women can play has been acknowledged too with mentoring schemes now available for a woman wanting to start their own business. Bold thinkers are needed to boost the economy and create jobs and there could not be a better time to tap into the assistance that is on offer, and go for it!
More good news is the fact small and medium enterprises are said to be faring better now than they were six months ago, despite the dire economic outlook. Staff numbers are being increased in some sectors while the number of firms cutting workers has fallen.Of course there are still financial challenges facing all of us, especially in the UK. It is not all doom and gloom though. In fact you could be just the person to help the economy boom again. Got an idea? Then what’s stopping you? Start off on your own economy drive!
