LONDON, ENGLAND, May 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Figures released by the national enterprise campaign StartUp Britain confirm, London is the UK's entrepreneurial powerhouse with a total of 136,939 newly registered businesses with Companies House in 2013, followed by Birmingham with 16,281 new businesses and Manchester with 11,765. Josh Peace, Managing Director of Ventas Central, says: "London is the perfect location to start a new business. It is multi-cultural, diverse, innovative and open to new ideas." Josh Peace adds: "The figures show an enormous difference between London and the remaining cities. It would be great to see if entrepreneurs would consider locations outside London to run their business."
London is in fact the UK's powerhouse, dominating Britain's entrepreneurial boom. In 2013, more than one in five new start-up businesses were registered in Greater London, home to one in eight people in the UK. "There is no doubt, London is a fantastic starting point for entrepreneurs", explains Josh Peace of Ventas Central who has opened up his company in Angel, Islington in London. Ventas Central have experienced rapid growth since the firm's opening.

A report published by the Centre for Cities confirm London's value for so many entrepreneurs and young people looking for work during their studies and to move up the career ladder. Britain's capital is creating ten times more jobs in the private sector than the second fastest growing town, Edinburgh. Emma Jones from Start-up Britain says: "We have been looking at these figures carefully for three years since the campaign began and it is clear the UK's start-up community is growing year-on-year. The new regional statistics reveal a powerhouse in the South East and London."
Josh Peace of Ventas Central looks very optimistically in the future. "Being based in London, we are forecasting a 150 per cent growth by the end of this year", says Josh Peace. Ventas Central, an outsourced sales and marketing firm that raises brand awareness on behalf of their clients, are currently preparing to expand into two further locations in the UK. "London is likely to maintain its status as Britain's entrepreneurial powerhouse and in 2014 the number of start-ups is expected to beat last year's figures. We now hope to see increased activity in other areas of the country as well," summarises Josh Peace.
