Despite the economic uncertainty post Brexit, the study has shown that entrepreneurship in the UK is still strong and many Brits still have the desire and ambition to make it in the business world. As supporters of entrepreneurship, Iconic Event Strategies were thrilled by the results of the study and believe that they point to a bright future for small businesses in the UK.
However, whilst the desire to start a business is rife among Brits, there are still many barriers standing in the way of business ownership. The study also looked into the reasons why people don’t want to start their own businesses and a lack of start-up capital was cited as the prominent factor by 51 percent of respondents. A third of respondents also claimed that they wouldn’t know where to start when it comes to planning a new business, whilst lack of direction was also a major factor standing in the way of potential start-up success.
Iconic Event Strategies strongly believe that for those wishing to make a mark in the business world, working in the sales and event marketing industry could be a great way of overcoming these common barriers.
