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?
