Next Government must back small business innovation to boost every region

The next government must launch policies that help small businesses leverage technology, boost skills and innovate to power their local economies, says small business support platform and membership community Enterprise Nation.

Its detailed manifesto, with ideas backed-up by independent research, identifies decisive ways the next government can make a meaningful difference to the UK’s growing start-up and small business community, helping them to innovate and create good jobs in their own communities.

Emma Jones, CBE, founder and CEO of Enterprise Nation, said: “There is no doubt that technology is going to underpin the UK’s long-term economic prosperity.

“As we look ahead to the next chapter of our nation’s story, it is imperative that any incoming government does not lose sight of the important contribution made by entrepreneurs, start-ups and small firms.

“A thriving small business sector is not just an economic imperative, but a catalyst for a more prosperous, resilient, and inclusive society. Small businesses innovate more, create better jobs and deliver a bigger boost to their local economy.

“By introducing some consistency and centralisation to business support, we will see more firms benefit from the productivity gains technology and access to the right support brings, allowing them to build more innovative, sustainable and resilient businesses, not just in tech, but in hospitality, fashion and high street retail.

“It is time to usher in a new era where the voices of small business owners are not only heard but amplified, shaping policies that remove barriers, provide access to resources, and pave the way for sustainable success.”
