London – The No. 1 European Capital to Set Up a Business
With the largest number of VAT and/or PAYE-based businesses, making up 18 per cent of the UK total and increasing 7.2 per cent over the last year. Small firms in the capital had received more investment over the first half of the year than any other European city, with Stockholm in second place.
Amid financial concerns, the Brexit effect and the weakening pound London still manages to hit the top spot thanks to its many business support networks ensuring small businesses get off the ground successfully.
Here at FashionCapital.co.uk and Fashion Enter our core ethos is centred on training, support, mentoring and promotion. Jenni Sutton, Senior Development Manager at Fashion Enter comments:
“As Senior Development Manager here at Fashion Enter I’ve seen the company literally help 1000’s of start up businesses over the last 11 years. Below are a few testimonials. We care about designers and we support them every step of the way from fabric sourcing using our base fabrics that have continuity through to sales. We’ve just opened a photographic studio so new businesses can hire out all the lighting and back drops plus have an experienced technician on site for a fraction of the real cost. Your success is our success.”
Testimonials from those that have worked with us:
“This is such an important part of our journey with our business and I am so glad we found FashionCapital. The advice is always honest and pertinent and so far we have saved valuable time and money on sourcing costs and also FashionCapital encourages NOT to spend money on copious amounts of patterns. Its heart warming that in these difficult times we have FashionCapital behind us who cares and are there for us.” – Michaela Jedinak
“I joined FashionCapital.co.uk just a month ago and in that time I have had many mentoring sessions that have helped me enormously with my collection. I have a list of two orders, a new e-tail site ready, a soft and full launch date and help has also been so detailed that wording on my look book was upgraded. FashionCapital.co.uk is a genuine company that has actually saved me money by helping me keep to tight budgeting. They really do care about the new and emerging designers of today. Thank you!” – Nosa – Designer
“Mentor Nigel Rust, Business Mentor, Coach and Manufacturing Specialist , has been a god send. When I started Beanie & Bear I was a complete novice. I had a great idea but no real way of making it happen. He has advised on everything from Spec Sheets to Non Disclosure agreements, Sampling through to Production, Fabric Consumption, Time Scales, you name it, he knows how best to get it done. There is no way that I would have made it this far without his mentoring.” – Beanie & Bear
