Sir Richard Branson recently took the time to talk to Ingenious Britain about collaboration between small businesses.
Transcript: “I feel as though there’s a big value in having a sort of address book full of people trying to build businesses where you can swap ideas, barter products and see how you can piggyback and help each other. That’s something I didn’t have when I started, and I would love to have had a mentor or someone to have held my hand and I just think it just gives people that much better a chance of them getting established, I mean 8 or 9 out of 10 new businesses fail so if one can just increase those odds by 10% that would be brilliant.”
Ingenious Britain takes a look at some of the issues likely to be on the agenda of the small business sector ahead of the Budget 2014 and invites small businesses to make their own contribution to the Budget debate by using the Call Osborne hotline.
Ingenious Britain offers some ideas on what small businesses in the UK can do to maximise the business benefits of the forthcoming World Cup in Brazil.
