Survey Claim is Rubbish

Posted on 28th June 2012

A recent study has ranked two West Midlands cities in the bottom ten of major UK cities to create more businesses than it lost when the UK emerged from recession in 2010.

However, the findings have been described as rubbish by Dudley leader councillor, David Sparks, who said: “I think the survey is rubbish, I distrust it” and instead has urged budding entrepreneurs within the Black Country to take advantage of the recent funding scheme launched by the government, and set up their own business.

Under the new national Start-Up Loans scheme, entrepreneurs aged between 18 and 24 are being offered finance and support to help kick-start more businesses and tackle youth unemployment; and Mr Sparks has said: “We would certainly encourage young people from across the Black Country looking to set up their own business to explore how this scheme could help them.

“As with other initiatives such as the Prince’s Trust loans, which are also available across the region, people can pick up support in a variety of ways including help in putting together a business plan right through to receiving a loan to set up the business.”
