Start-Up Tour Has Begun

Posted on 15th July 2013

As the sun continues to shine on the UK, Start-Up Britain’s annual start-up tour has begun, with the start-up bus set to visit 30+ locations across the UK over the next few weeks.

The tour, which started in London’s Portobello Road on Saturday (July 13), will stay in the capital until tomorrow and then travel around the country, culminating in Sheffield on August 10.

Now in its third year, the start-up tour is designed to encourage entrepreneurs to talk and think about starting up their own business and to guide them in the direction of people who can help.

People who board the bus will be able to talk with the tour’s sponsors, PayPal, BT Business and Intuit, so that they can discover what national initiatives are available to support their idea and make useful connections to help start or grow their business.

Business Minister Michael Fallon will officially launch the start-up tour today, as well as a free nation-wide marketing initiative that will give start-ups the chance to win a year’s free marketing support from a leading agency.

Meanwhile Marketing4StartUp Britain will begin its five-days of back-to-back events aimed at helping new businesses to grow, by holding its first session aboard the StartUp Britain bus

The on-board session is the first of a tranche of workshops to be held at agencies around the UK this week. From London, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh, top agencies will be opening their doors to offer free advice to fledgling businesses.

At the end of the week, start-ups that have been trading for less than two years will have the chance to enter a competition that could see them win the services of a marketing agency for a year.
