The entrepreneurship site Minute Hack asked selected business leaders to comment on the post-election results and their expectations from the Conservative majority.
Whilst the coalition has created a good environment for small businesses over the last five years, there’s more the next government can do. James Poyser, one of inniAccounts’ co-founders, shares his three requests for small businesses.
1) Help young people enter the workforce by actively promoting the alternatives to university and apprenticeships, and helping them to be ‘office ready’. This can be done by strengthening the links between education and employers.
2) More funding and incentives for growing businesses, not just start-ups, such as National Insurance holidays and government loans
3) A larger network of talented and experienced experts to help advise small businesses who want to grow.
