FPB calls for national day to recognise UK entrepreneurs

FPB calls for national day to recognise UK entrepreneurs

Freelancers may be interested to learn that The Business Woman’s Network and the FPB are supporting the call for a national day to celebrate UK micro business owners.

The online business knowledge website wanobe.com launched the idea of a day to celebrate the UK entrepreneurs who run the 4.5 million small firms in Britain.

David Noble, the managing director of Wanobe.com said the men and women who run the UK’s small businesses represent dynamism for the battered economy at a time of high unemployment and are the nation’s unsung heroes.

95% of all companies in the UK are micro enterprises and between them they employ 33% of the workforce. Noble says it’s now time to acknowledge the vital role entrepreneurs play in driving the economy.

The FPB has already launched its own initiative called ‘Get Britain Trading’. Phil McCabe, the PR manager for the Forum, said although micro-business entrepreneurs are spearheading the fight to drive the British economy, a lot of people have no idea what it takes to run a business. Having a dedicated day to celebrate the contributions and efforts of small business entrepreneurs would be a wonderful way to highlight how commitment, creativity and bright ideas generate new jobs and help stimulate economic growth.

The Business Woman’s Network’s Mandie Holgate, explained that there are now more than 950,000 self employed females in the UK and around 15% of firms are majority owned by women. They should be extremely proud of the contribution they make to both society and the economy.
