The sentinel has given us some great news over the years, their latest piece about start-ups in the city of Stoke-On-Trent is a very welcoming article.
“STOKE-ON-TRENT has been named the number two city in the country for business start-ups. Formation experts Quality Formations awarded Stoke-on-Trent the title of the second best place to set-up a company in a list of the UK’s 69 cities. Business editor Laura James looks at why people should think about starting a business in the city.”
We spoke to them about this and what some of the potential reasons why we came second place, and well there are lots! We have a large range of resources at our finger tips including ‘The Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce’ based in festival park (https://staffordshirechambers.co.uk/). Stoke-on-trent city council’s own start-up initiatives such as ‘The Start-Up Competition’ (http://www.thestart-up.co.uk/).
