Feedback from some members who have worked with Smarter Britain and are now building their own dream businesses.
"I didn’t even know how to start to form a company or build a business. I had tried before and failed. Smarter Britain walked me through the steps and made it all very easy – and it didn’t cost me a penny! Thank you."
"I had the idea of what I wanted to do but I didn’t have the confidence to turn it into a real business. My mentor has helped me hugely. I now have a running music business which is just great fun and very exciting."
"Smarter Britain was exactly what I needed to help me to create my business. I now employ 3 colleagues and have been able to provide an exciting service to my customers."
