“Vodafone, Royal Bank of Scotland and Microsoft have joined the government in backing a business support website, billed as Facebook for entrepreneurs, to be launched this autumn. Smarta is the brainchild of internet investor Sháá Wasmund, who acted as boxer Chris Eubank’s promoter before founding teenage girls’ website Mykindaplace. He now runs internet investment fund Brightstation Ventures.”
I agree 100% with the problem with government small biz advisers of not having the relevant business expertise to support budding entrepreneurs. This is a great step in the right direction to bridge this gap.
