entrepreneurial environment. The country has a good number of
institutions that offer financial and technical services that network
the country’s millions of micro-entrepreneurs. However, as readers of

The United Kingdom remains a fierce competitor in the global race to develop the best startup ecosystem in the world. As noted in previous posts, Prime Minister David Cameron is keen for an economic recovery led by new firm formation introducing both policies and initiatives like Startup Britain to accelerate efforts nationwide.
