In our Action Plan for more and better new businesses, we’ve set just three BIG Aims.


Start changing minds towards business failure, eliminating negative social perceptions and stigma towards honest business failure.


Work with Higher and Vocational Education Providers to ensure that Business Failure and its consequences is taught as part of all enterprise courses.


Educate Banks, Micro Credit and Finance Providers that people who have failed in business before are statistically a better risk than first time start-ups
