THE ENTREPRENEUR

BUSINESS FOUNDER

“The government’s attention to technology infrastructure in the Budget is right. Its plans to deliver superfast broadband to 90 per cent of the population, and to fund ultra-fast broadband in 10 of the UK’s largest cities, is certainly encouraging. School for Startups is currently hosting Web Fuelled Business bootcamps around the UK and we know how important connectivity is to small business. It is the lifeblood of entrepreneurs in the UK, so these announcements by George Osborne are definitely a step in the right direction. However, if this country is to continue to compete on a global stage we must not stop until the whole of the UK has access to ultra-fast broadband.”
