'There is a lot of support available for new business owners and start-up companies throughout Europe, something I notice we lack in the US. I think it's time we implement a structure that will assist in educating budding entrepreneurs and offering guidance and support. Start-up businesses offer a great opportunity for our economy to not only recover but to also become stronger' claims Antoine Bell of The BBB Conglomerate Network.
Approximately 50 percent of businesses fail in the first year. This number has also been held to increase dramatically in the first five years of running a business, when the number is claimed to rise as high as 90 to 95 percent.
'These are scary numbers' adds The BBB Conglomerate Network's CEO Antoine Bell. 'It's important the right advice and education is available to new business owners to prepare them for the many issues that will come up in their first few years of business'.
