Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones was part of a roundtable hosted by business secretary Alok Sharma focused on the support new businesses need to be part of the UK's economic recovery after the coronavirus pandemic.
It was one of five conversations which brought together businesses, business representative organisations, regulators and academics to discuss the measures necessary to support economic recovery over the next 18 months and beyond.
As well as the feedback given during the roundtables, the government is keen to hear from the wider business community and we'd love to see Enterprise Nation members represented. The questions the government is asking are:
what are the most significant barriers to starting and growing a business in the UK?
what are the most critical factors for successfully growing a business in the UK?
what specific actions should be taken to ensure the UK creates a strong pipeline of investable start-ups that have the potential to grow?
what more can be done to encourage businesses to invest in their own success?
how can businesses be supported through venture capital?
