S is for #StartUps
Our businesses and Essex-preneurs get help to bring their ideas to life. If we leave the EU then we leave our small businesses high and dry.
Think we are making this up?
Last year, the European Investment Fund (EIF), committed over £2bn to UK-based venture capital funds between 2011 and 2015. Essex is the UK’s 2nd largest receiver when it comes to getting investment to help startups and new business flourish.
Maybe your child has a great idea, or as a team of excited students or workmates, you have the next Dyson or Apple on your hands; either way – with the money getting sucked out the UK, and no guarantees from the Government – who will support the next breed of inventors, thinkers and manufacturers? Britain is an innovation powerhouse and it’s vital that we make sure our cutting-edge firms have the funding they need to meet their potential and conquer new markets but despite Chancellor Hammond’s lip service to startups in a post Brexit scenario – we are not taking anything for granted.
Sign up with our campaign today and protect the investment for Essex businesses.
Show the upstarts in HM Government that we will not take Brexit lying down!
