The Manchester-based sales and marketing firm Blue Moose is ecstatic at the recent news that Manchester is now considered the second most entrepreneurial city in the UK. While the UK still ranks the 8th most entrepreneurial country in the world, new analysis finds that Manchester is the biggest driver of business growth in the UK, after Brighton.
Blue Moose is confident that their activity in the city has helped contribute to these recent findings.
The Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham revealed in a recent interview that the city has aims to overtake Brighton. He stated: “we’ve got a very vibrant digital tech and tech sector, like Brighton but is really growing quite fast. Our aim should be to be the top. We want to be the UK’s leading digital city.” While Blue Moose is happy with the recent results, they disagree with this recent comment arguing that Manchester also has a huge direct sales and marketing industry that must be considered as a leading contributor to these results.
Blue Moose is certain that they will see huge growth moving into Q4 as recent research has demonstrated that young professionals are now aspiring to own their own business. Blue Moose is proud that their business development programme offers young professionals with the education and mentorship necessary for success in the business world. They provide daily mentorship on business skills and send their successful representatives across the country to industry events in the hopes that they can pick up a range of entrepreneurial skills from a range of perspectives. A spokesperson for the firm recently stated:
“Our business model offers young professionals with the training and support needed for them to eventually set up their own business. We like to attract forward-thinking individuals in hopes that we can contribute to the future business success of Manchester.”
Blue Moose is content to see that London ranked 12th in the UK and are confident that these results accurately contest the idea that London is the business capital of the UK. Moving forward into 2018, Blue Moose hope to expand their business into a number of offices throughout the UK.
