Business Secretary Vince Cable outlines 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.”
