“We see the growth of Start-Ups and SMEs, particularly in sectors like technology and the creative industry, as essential for the future growth of the regional economy. The Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP area’s reputation as a leading innovator in the digital sector is continuing to rise and we need to be able to offer start-up technology businesses the support that they need to ensure that their ideas and products succeed. The LAUNCH event further demonstrates that Birmingham is becoming a Centre of Excellence for the digital and gaming industry.
In the present economic climate it is difficult for all businesses to raise finance and this is no exception for the digital market. National statistics indicate that less than 1 in 20 start-ups secure the finance that they need to get their business up and running. Nevertheless there is a pool of finance out their looking for the right business opportunities and backing would-be future entrepreneurs in this sector. Never has it been more important to take professional advice to make sure that you have the best chance of securing the finance that you need and on the best terms available.
In such a competitive market only the best articulated propositions will succeed in securing financial investment and we believe Blue Sky’s wealth of experience in the technology arena puts us best placed to assist businesses in this sector.
