Jonathan Diggines - Enterprise Ventures

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Thursday, 15 October 2009.

Jonathan Diggines has been investing in companies for two decades. He does not like to be reminded of it, as it reminds him of just how long he’s been around the finance business, but he’s one of the UK’s most experienced private equity bosses.

As chief executive of Enterprise Ventures, the ever-expanding PE firm from Manchester, Diggines ditched a career as a lawyer because he wanted to be at the heart of the deals, not merely administering them.

Marc Worth - entrepreneur and investor

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Thursday, 08 October 2009.

When you've sold your business for £142m and got tens of millions sitting in the bank it might be tempting to just kick back and enjoy the fruits of your labour. Not for Marc Worth.

Worth, the founder of fashion trend and analysis website the Worth Global Style Network (WGSN), is one of those true entrepreneurs. For him every morning is an opportunity to make the coming day the one when the next big idea comes along.

The numbers you need to know

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 30 September 2009.

Those familiar with the BBC2 show Dragons’ Den will be all too aware of the following scene. The entrepreneur is tasked with presenting his business plan to a panel of investors (i.e., the Dragons). The business plan pitch is going well, and then one of the dragons asks the simplest of questions, ”What was your turnover last year?” The camera pans in, the participant stutters, eventually he declares that he is ”not sure” and before you know it, he is sent packing.

Accelerating innovation - Technology Strategy Board

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 28 September 2009.

Dr Allyson Reed is one of those people whose enthusiasm and hard work keep the UK moving. As Director of Strategy and Communications at the Technology Strategy Board, she helps manage a range of programmes and delivery mechanisms aimed at driving innovation across the nation.

“We work to accelerate business innovation,” says Reed. “We work between business and government to connect people.”

The headline figure for Reed is a whopping £1bn. That’s £1bn from central government to invest in innovative UK business over three years.

Alastair Thomas - Arleigh International

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 28 September 2009.

Supplying equipment and consumables to the caravan and narrowboat markets doesn’t sound very glamorous. But with turnover up a fifth since the start of the recession, Arleigh International must be doing something right.

Some companies don’t waste any opportunity, however small. Arleigh International is one of them. When you’re on hold, its switchboard doesn’t play some insipid version of Greensleeves or have a “business casual” voiceover artist telling you that your call is important. Instead, you get to hear about special offers and new products.

“Our customers are busy people,” says entrepreneur and chief executive Alastair Thomas. “They can learn something about our products, even in that short time on hold.” It’s a fairly typical approach from a man who’s been hands-on with the business since day one.

Shareholder and Partnership Agreements - are you covered if it all goes wrong?

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 23 September 2009.

It’s not really what you want to focus on when you’re starting up, but any business with more than one owner should have a shareholder or partnership agreement drawn up from the outset. This should cover, as a minimum, the basis on which the business is owned and valued, as well as defining an exit strategy in case of the death, ill-health, retirement or early departure of one of the owners.

Victoria Lennox - NACUE

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 23 September 2009.

At the tender age of 25, Victoria Lennox is leading her very own entrepreneurial revolution in the UK.

Lennox’s plan was to bring a nation of young and entrepreneurial students together to create a formidable group of talent, innovation and ideas. With the National Consortium of University Entrepreneurs (NACUE) she’s done just that.

“Basically NACUE is a network that champions young entrepreneurs,” says the Canadian-born Oxford graduate. “We’re enablers more than anything and have built more than 70 enterprise societies around the nation.”

One Idea to Change the World

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 16 September 2009.

CNBC has announced the top 10 entries in The Good Entrepreneur competition, which was launched to recognise entrepreneurs across Europe with environmentally responsible business concepts. With a prize package worth over €250,000 up for grabs, the competition attracted a wide variety of innovative ideas. Three finalists will be selected from the shortlist and announced on Thursday 24 September.

10 Years of First Tuesday - fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 08 September 2009.

"I called First Tuesday my revenge on socialism. Maybe that's why Tony Blair, Prime Minister in 1999, always threatened to show up at a First Tuesday event, but never did." - Julie Meyer
