Chelmsford tops the start ups

Published: 21/02/14

The Real Business website reports that over 1000 new businesses were set up in the Essex county area last year, making Chelmsford a destination of choice for entrepreneurs all over the UK, new figures showed.

According to StartUp Britain, a campaign organisation that seeks to inspire enterprises, the latest numbers revealed that 5,689 businesses were started in places with the Chelmsford post code in 2013.

Although Chelmsford was ranked in 21st place in the business hotspot league table, it follows closely after the country's biggest cities such as Newcastle, Birmingham or Nottingham.

Neil Gulliver, the city councillor responsible for economic development, said he was not surprised that the city had become a hotspot for entrepreneurs and that more and more young graduates choose to set up their business here.

Emma Jones, co-founder of StartUp Britain, added: “We've been looking at these figures carefully for three years since the campaign began and it's clear the UK's start-up community is growing year-on-year.”

StartUp Britain was founded by a group of eight entrepreneurs and launched on March 28 2011 by the Prime Minister David Cameron to celebrate, accelerate and inspire enterprise in the UK.

Sponsored by BT Business, Iris, Intuit and PayPal, StartUp Britain offers events such as a series of start up classes to help people become their own boss; the possibility to pitch products to a major retailer and PopUp Britain which offers small UK businesses the chance to experiment with physical retail, test the market and gain face-to-face customer feedback.

For both 2012 and 2013 they embarked on a national tour of road shows that give would-be business people a chance to meet the experts and other entrepreneurs to discover what national initiatives are available and get their help and advice. Networking is also a big part and people are encouraged to mix with like minded individuals; making useful connections to share and compare and help their business grow. The national tour is designed to be for everyone irrespective of wherever they live and whatever their background; the message is that setting up your own business is for everybody.
