StartUp 2012: The Enterprise Calendar

Jan 30, 2012

At last someone has done it!

Start Up Britain, have created a place for all businesses to share their events, workshops, networking opportunities, conferences & competitions – “StartUp 2012: The Enterprise Calendar”.

This new interactive calendar allows the organisers to add event to the calendar and once added the viewer can see at a glance what’s happening on any one given day!

The calendar is part of the new BUSINESS IN YOU campaign, launched by the Prime Minister earlier this week, which brings together the Government and private sector to inspire people to start or grow their business.

Mark Prisk, Business and Enterprise Minister explains:

“We want 2012 to be the year of enterprise, where entrepreneurs can unlock their business potential. Enterprise events don’t just take place on one day, or during one week, but they appear throughout the year and across the country.

“We need to make sure people know that there is support and advice available, that it is easy to get, and it is often on their doorstep.

“The Government is committed to providing more opportunities for businesses to start and grow. We are continuing to increase the number of volunteers through the new national mentoring scheme and have launched an improved business link website. The enterprise calendar is a great addition to our support for business in 2012 and beyond.”

Also commenting on StartUp 2012, Dragons’ Den Entrepreneur Peter Jones said “I wish the StartUp Calendar had been around when I was starting up a business. It is a really useful, practical tool and will be invaluable in helping people find the support and inspiration they need over the coming year.”
