Business Start Up Show indicates increased interest

I spent the today on the Business & IP Centre stand at the Business Start Up Show at Olympia. This year they have moved into the larger hall and our stand was significantly busier than last year.

It seems that the recession is encouraging people to think about starting their own business, as predicted in one of my previous postings.

I met a City based lawyer who was positively relishing the prospect of being made redundant from her well paid, but boring job. She could wait to start investing her redundancy money into a business venture.

I was also rather suprised to see that Skype had a large stand at the show, but a company representative assured me that Skype are making a healthy profit. Although their computer to computer calls are free, they don’t cost Skype anything. For calls to landlines they share the profits with the local phone company.
