While there is still a long way to go, our economy is turning a corner and Britains small businesses can claim a big share in this revival.
Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy providing nearly half of all private sector jobs. And since 2010 weve seen over 300,000 of them start up.
Why dont you tell us about a great small business in your area?
This Government is getting behind Britains entrepreneurs in every way possible: from Start-Up Loans to help new businesses get off the ground to our New Enterprise Allowance for those who are unemployed and want to set up on their own.
Today in Downing Street I met just a few of the people who have made use of that help: Tom from Warwickshire whos recently set up a micro brewery with his younger brother; Jessica from Newcastle whos gone into business selling childrens clothes; Richard from York who in his sixties has started up his own florist.
Lets celebrate these people and everyone who is driving Britains recovery. Today were stepping up our Supporting Small Business campaign to do just that.
If you know of a great entrepreneur in your area whos started a business, taken on new staff and deserves to be recognised (dl Cameron a vrut sa scrie recognized, cred) then let us know about them.
Entrepreneurship is at the heart of my vision for Britain: a nation brimming full of aspiration, jobs and opportunity – a country where everyone who works hard can make it in life. This Government is backing small businesses every step of the way.
