From the Summer Bus tour to Tech Week, Startup Britain is on the road again!

Although the StartUp Britain Summer Bus Tour has regretfully come to a close, it has been an incredibly inspiring adventure.

The tour began on the 22nd of August and finished on Friday 23rd of September. It attracted remarkable interest over the past few months and has successfully inspired thousands of individuals across the county, to start or grow a business.

We have met such a variety of aspiring entrepreneurs, including students who need help turning their ideas into ventures, as well as employees who need the confidence to take the plunge into self-employment.

In the final part of the tour, on Thursday 22nd of September, the StartUp Britain bus joined in with the Entrepreneurial festival of the year: MADE, which was designed to encourage businesses to network, learn and grow. The festival attracted around 3,000 people, including successful entrepreneurs and government ministers, as well as many up-and-coming business owners.
