 Mark Powney, Managing Director of Business News Wales, comments: 

“I’ve started a number of businesses with the help of the Prince’s Trust, PBI, Venture Wales and Business In Focus and I know that real-life experience can be very different from what you read in textbooks. We want our Startup channel to give entrepreneurs the help they need to succeed.

It’s with great pride that I have found myself able to support others starting a business with the launch of this new section. It will open up a valuable conversation between businesses, government and public bodies as well as universities and other stakeholders playing their part in supporting the start-up community in Wales.”

One of the core objectives of Business News Wales to showcase Wales as a thriving business destination, and in the launch of this new section highlight the upward trend in Wales when it comes to entrepreneurship.
