The government has launched a new campaign aimed at offering additional support to small businesses across the country.

The “Business is Great Britain” campaign is a partnership between private enterprise and the government which wants to “encourage you to take the leap to start up a business or grow your own existing one”.

Business secretary Vince Cable spoke at the launch of the campaign, saying “I hope everyone now sees that the government is supporting small businesses in a joined-up way.”

The “Business is Great Britain” campaign is being led by a new website, which provides useful content for businesses, as well as links to public funded schemes and organisations offering help, funding and guidance to small business owners.

The campaign website will be utilising case studies of companies which have been successful in building out operations to demonstrate its value to new businesses.

Skills and enterprise minister Matthew Hancock, who was also at the launch added: “Small firms are a vital driver of our economy’s success, so it is imperative we do all we can to ensure businesses don’t just survive, but thrive to compete in the global race”.
