A national enterprise roadshow will be visiting Birmingham in a bid to encourage more business start-ups.
Start Up Britain is a nationwide campaign created by entrepreneurs and corporates and supported by Prime Minister David Cameron.
The campaign will bring its double-decker bus to Birmingham to deliver help and support from top business advisers and entrepreneurs to help the growing number of people who are becoming their own boss.
The aim is to push the number of new businesses to a record 500,000 start-ups across the UK during 2013.
The roadshow will be in Birmingham’s Victoria Square on Thursday August 8 from 10am to 5pm as part of a nationwide tour of more than 30 cities.
There will also be a seminar during the day-long event for over-30s who are often neglected by business support schemes.
The Start Up Britain double-decker bus will give visitors the chance to gain expert commercial advice and receive information on business funding and other government initiatives among a host of other commercially-related activities.
Regional ambassador for Start Up Britain Joel Blake said: “I am bringing the national Start Up Britain Bus Tour to Birmingham and would like help to get Birmingham recognised for supporting the most amount of people to start and grow their own business, in order to boost our local economy and help those who can’t get access to employment opportunities.
“The tour came to Birmingham two years ago and more than 300 people received support during the day.”
