Startup manifesto means Britain is open for business

The Entrepreneurs Network and Coadec have launched a startup manifesto to boost entrepreneurship.

In Brief:

  • The manifesto is backed by founders from Transferwise, LendInvest and YO!Sushi

  • It’s been signed by over 250 UK entrepreneurs.

  • Main issues are access to talent, tax incentives, capital and simple regulations.

What does this mean?

The manifesto hopes to make it easier to start a business in the UK – this will be especially important for FinTechs which make up an increasing proportion of tech startups. In regards to talent, it’s calling for a reform of the visa system so that top skills can be attracted to UK businesses from around the world.

Read our take.
