Best place to start a digital business...
If they want to achieve that, how about giving access to grants and funding possible for mortals and not use them to disguise high interest loans?
A lot of the funding goes into the pockets of startup accelerators / serial board members and not into the hands of actual British innovators.
Next time you come across a startup, do some due dil on the CEO and other execs, I'll bet you'll find they "run" about a half dozen firms.
It's becoming the norm for a shady bloke or two rocking up to an accelerator with a dodgy buzz word filled business plan, securing some funding then offshoring the tech work and building out a bare bones MVP then punting it on to a bag holder.
Most tech projects can be pulled off by a small team of engineers, no middlemen are required, which is relatively cheap and very efficient. That's how projects used to work.
These days you have a board of non-technical fuckwits outnumbering the actual talent all clawing to "own the data and the intellectual property" despite not having a hand in inventing the product or executing the plan.
Meanwhile, you generally have one Cambridge Comp Sci prick with very little real world exposure (whose fundamental job is to lend some sort of credibility to the project) overseeing a team of Indians or Romanians and struggling with a language barrier which ultimate leads to a massively delayed and subpar product.
