Entrepreneurs are held back

A BUNDLE of reforms to restrictive government policies that hold back entrepreneurship in the UK were proposed by a think tank yesterday.

Policy suggestions like the extension of specific reliefs for entrepreneurs, new advice vouchers and reform to business rates are endorsed by a range of start-up owners and a range of politicians from several parties.

The suggestions are collated by the Entrepreneurs’ Network, a think tank backed by fund management firm Octopus Investments.
