ERC Deputy Director Mark Hart joined an expert panel at the The Centre for the New Midlands webinar ” How do we fire up the start-ups” discussing how to make the West Midlands the most attractive place to start a new business in the UK. Amongst the questions discussed were
- Is the West Midlands the place to start your new business?
- What more could be done to make the region more attractive?
- Are the right grant schemes in place to support entrepreneurs with the next ‘big’ idea?
- What support is there for those wishing to potentially sustain themselves or create only a handful of jobs? Does the start up eco-system only favour rapid growth and/or tech companies?
