Setting up and running a business can be a daunting prospect. But the spirit of entrepreneurship that accompanies every new and growing business can also liberate, excite and inspire.

It transcends class, gender, age and every other social divide; entrepreneurship can be found anywhere.

In short, turning a good idea into a business is one of the most positive acts an individual can perform for themselves and the community in which they live.

We need to create an atmosphere of entrepreneurship that seeps into every part of our society and makes the proposition of setting up and running a business a realistic prospect for anyone with a good idea.

The Federation of Small Businesses has launched the Real Life Entrepreneurs campaign to champion and promote the interests of Real Life Entrepreneurs across the North East.

 

 

We believe that the best ideas have humble beginnings and the smallest businesses often take the biggest risks. Anyone who has a good idea and takes a risk to put that idea into practice and grows a business is an entrepreneur. These are the people – the Real-Life Entrepreneurs – who the FSB champions.

The campaign is calling on the Government to help Real Life Entrepreneurs by making running a business easier. To achieve this Government needs to make access to credit easier, simplify the tax system, ease the burden of regulation and ensure that Real Life Entrepreneurs are paid on time.

We need to create an atmosphere of entrepreneurship that seeps into every part of our society and makes the proposition of setting up and running a business a realistic prospect for anyone with a good idea.

The FSB champions all Real-Life Entrepreneurs and has partnered with Young Enterprise, everywoman, Heropreneurs, New Deal of the Mind, PRIME and Leonard Cheshire Disability to consider the more specific needs of sections of society.

Together, we’re calling on the Government to launch a concerted effort to nurture and promote entrepreneurship, wherever it may be found.
