It’s time to #GetBizzy

We're celebrating World Entrepreneurs’ Day with the launch of our new campaign targeted towards 16 to 24 year olds.


Entrepreneurs play an important role in driving economic growth and innovation. Whether they’re establishing a new service or inventing a product, entrepreneurs can change the lives of people across the world with their creations.


Today (21 August) is World Entrepreneurs’ Day, a global event that raises awareness of entrepreneurs and the work they do.


Our register holds data for more than 4.2 million companies. The number of young directors aged 16-24 has grown by 35% over the last 5 years, from 87,477 in 2014 to 117,810 as of July this year.


As an organisation firmly committed to supporting the government’s Industrial Strategy, we want to play our part to make sure the UK remains the best place to do business in the future.


That’s why we’re launching our #GetBizzy campaign in partnership with the Great British Entrepreneurship Awards. Our aim is to help inspire the country’s next generation of entrepreneurs and make sure 16-24 year olds are aware of who we are, what we do and how our tools and resources can help them take their business ideas to the next level.


Our chief executive and the Registrar of Companies in England and Wales, Louise Smyth, said:


As an organisation, we aim to support the government’s Industrial Strategy by driving confidence in the UK economy.


It’s incredibly important, therefore, to recognise both the work of young entrepreneurs and the positive contribution they are making to the UK’s business environment.


Our blog has a range of information about company services and the information we hold on the register. Over the coming months, our #GetBizzy campaign will feature guest blog posts from organisations across the UK who support young entrepreneurs. We’ll also share the stories of start-ups and established businesses set up by young entrepreneurs.


So if you’re a young entrepreneur looking to grow your business, or perhaps you have your business idea but don’t know where to start, it’s time for you to #GetBizzy and make the most of our tools and resources.
