Is United Kingdom a good place to start a business. I think that it is a good place to start business, but you have to have a clear idea about what you’re selling, what will make you stand out, etc. However, this view is not shared by the majority the UK’s population (10 Shocking Findings About UK Attitudes To Entrepreneurs & Business) – Only under 30’s think it is a good time to start a business, while older people are more likely to think it’s a bad time. Times of economic crisis always provide both increased opportunities and increased risk. Given that the UK has been dealing with the current crisis for 5 years – I’d say there’s plenty more of both on the horizon.
