Some of the biggest names in British business – including Entrepreneurs and Dragons Theo Paphitis and Deborah Meaden have given their support for smarta.com. The new business support network is designed to help people of all ages to succeed in setting up or running their business.
Smarta.com is successful entrepreneur Sháá Wasmund's latest venture. The website will offer practical advice on getting business ideas off the ground, free legal and financial advice, and allow people of all experiences and backgrounds to network with other business owners and entrepreneurs to share ideas, tips and knowledge.
The launch is backed by research released by Smarta.com which reveals that despite nearly 3 million Brits wanting to set up their own business, 86% never achieve their goal – a situation no doubt exacerbated by the current economic crisis. 98% of entrepreneurs surveyed said they would welcome a comprehensive business support resource online, which could guide businesses and entrepreneurs through the lifecycle of thinking about starting up a business, the process of creating their own business, and taking their business to the next level. Smarta predict that with the right support network in place, budding entrepreneurs and small businesses could inject an extra £5.4bn a year into the UK economy and meet the economic crisis head-on.
Smarta has been backed by British companies NatWest, RBS and Vodafone on board as Founding Partners as well as support from Mishcon de Reya and Business Environment, as well as support from the government, and hopes to have 200,000 users by the end of 2009.

Sháá got in to business when she was asked to promote a Chris Eubank fight. She then worked for James Dyson, establishing the Dyson brand in the UK, before founding teen girl site MyKindaPlace before it sold to BSkyB (NYSE: BSY). Sháá is an engaging and inspirational keynote speaker. For more information or to book Sháá for your event please call us on +44 (0) 208 365 3200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
