A MAJOR initiative to promote new businesses has been backed by Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage.

The Business in You initiative is a partnership between the government and private enterprise.

The campaign website provides the inspiration, support and guidance to help uncover the entrepreneurial spark in budding business owners and anyone who thinks that they might have a good idea.

Following its launch this week, Ms Dinenage said: ‘Small businesses are the lifeblood of the British economy, and I welcome this move to unleash the entrepreneurial potential in everyone. As I am a small business owner myself, I know that however rewarding the experience is, the obstacles to getting started are daunting.’

The campaign has been launched by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and existing industry leaders.

It asks the business leaders of the future to see http://businessinyou.bis.gov.uk/ to find out more.
