‘There’s a business in everyone’, says Cameron

The Government has unveiled a new campaign aimed at encouraging people to start or grow their own business.

The ‘Business in You’ initiative is designed to inspire would-be entrepreneurs to realise their ambitions whilst highlighting the support that is available to SMEs.

Launched in partnership with StartUp Britain, the scheme is supported by a variety of business groups, including the Confederation of British Industry and the Federation of Small Businesses.

Based on the concept that there is ‘a business in everyone’, it will attempt to boost entrepreneurship by showcasing real life business success stories. Some of the campaign partners will also be offering free workshops and seminars as part of the programme.

Launching the campaign, the Prime Minister David Cameron said: ‘Small businesses and entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of the British economy and I am determined that we, working with the private sector, do everything we can to help them to start up and to grow in 2012.

‘I want to encourage people to go for it and make this the year of enterprise – whether that is fulfilling their dream of starting a new business or taking the leap to grow their business, to employ more staff, or to start exporting.’

In addition, the Prime Minister has announced plans to make vacant Government offices available to new and existing small businesses.

The Government hopes to offer more than 300 Government buildings premises at low rates for one year to help small businesses get started.
