New loan scheme will help to inspire more entrepreneurs
Commenting on the new StartUP Loan Scheme launched by the Prime Minister today, Caroline Williams CEO Norfolk Chamber of Commerce said:
“We have some excellent businesses here in Norfolk that have been built up from scratch; companies that have become successes thanks to the drive and ambition of our entrepreneurs.. Every business has to start from somewhere and it is these smaller, growing companies that will be integral to the future of our economy.
“But for many young people, the finances needed to get a business idea off the ground can deter them from starting up. This scheme will inspire more young people with a passion for business to transform their ideas into reality. If the loan scheme is successful, and we see more young people starting up businesses, it has the potential to benefit the economy, and tackle the problems of getting young people into work. Furthermore, schools and colleges should take an active role in encouraging young people to make the most of these opportunities. Norfolk Chamber is doing all it can to encourage new businesses with its own special membership offer to all start up businesses of only £99+vat which can be paid monthly installments with no joining fee.. This not only gives great benefits needed when you start up a business but all the marketing opportunities available to members are also included. More details ”.
