Entrepreneurial Stockport is the place to do business

by Lib Dem team on 26 January, 2015

New figures from Startup Britain show that Stockport remains one of the top places in the country to start up a new business, second only to Manchester across the Greater Manchester city region.


Stockport has the 23rd most startups in the country, only 500 behind Liverpool (which has nearly double our population).

    Oh Come on. Recycling we are good at. Starting up… well at 23rd its nothing to brag about. Anyhow, starting up is relatively easy. Staying ‘started’ is the hard part. What about stats for businesses that went into administration for the same period? We like a balanced view.

      There are hundreds of councils across the country so I’d say 23rd is pretty good – especially when you look at the size of some of the places only just above us. I agree that it would be good to get the other side too, I don’t have those figures but if I find them I’ll be happy to publish them.
