Priorities for supporting new businesses to start and scale up in the UK

9:00 am - 1:00 pm 26/01/2021


This conference will look at the key policy priorities for supporting start-ups and encouraging business growth in the UK.

It will be a timely opportunity to discuss progress in the Government’s aim of making the UK the best place in the world to start a business as set out in the Industrial Strategy – as well as extra support that start-ups may need in the wake of the pandemic and as the UK transitions from the EU.

We are delighted to be able to include a ministerial contribution from Paul Scully MP, Minister for Small Business, Consumers and Labour Markets, Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, as well as keynotes from Alice Hu Wagner, Managing Director, Strategy, Economics and Business Development, British Business Bank; and Emma Jones, Founder, Enterprise Nation.

The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from BEIS; the IPO and The Scottish Government, as well as representatives from the APPG on Fair Business Banking.

The agenda:

  • Policy priorities for supporting new entrepreneurs and economic growth
  • What entrepreneurs want – how policymakers can support small business
  • Developing future entrepreneurs – education, mentoring, and wellbeing
  • Access to finance and supporting diversity
  • Tackling key challenges to starting and scaling up businesses in the UK – investment, business support, and mitigating the impact of the pandemic and transition from the EU
