According to the Centre for Entrepreneurs – the entrepreneurs’ think tank – 2015 was a record year for start-up formation in the UK, with a total of 608,100 new businesses started. The Centre has analysed the latest Companies House data, revealing that the UK has managed to sustain the growth trend in company formation despite the strong economic recovery in the aftermath of the recession – suggesting a deep cultural shift towards entrepreneurialism is underway.
The Centre’s analysis highlights significant trends emerging in the UK – including London’s continued dominance as a hub of entrepreneurial activity, the growing strength of other major conurbations, and the growth of start-ups in suburban and exurban areas.
