Calling all entrepreneurs

Northern Ireland entrepreneurs are being called on to share their views on current business conditions as part of a UK-wide survey.

Business advisory firm Deloitte has launched its annual survey of UK entrepreneurs for a report titled ‘Entrepreneurship UK: 2009’ and is inviting entrepreneurs from across Northern Ireland to take part, so they can benchmark the attitudes of local business innovators against those across the the UK.

“Entrepreneurs have a voracious appetite for growth, a passion for success and are naturally very positive about their businesses. In fact, the results of last year’s survey revealed that entrepreneurs were bullish about their future with 45% predicting revenue growth in excess of 20% during 2008,” said Glenn Roberts, a partner at Deloitte in Northern Ireland.

“However, the past 12 months have been extremely challenging for business and we are interested to gauge how businesses in Northern Ireland are responding, especially against their peers across the rest of the UK.” The yearly report aims to provide an insight into the mindset of the country’s entrepreneurial business talent and the challenges and opportunities facing today’s fast paced businesses.

Deloitte says the survey only takes up to 8 minutes to complete and everyone participating will receive a copy of the final report.

The results will be analysed by Deloitte, entrepreneur James Caan and the London Business School and will be published early summer.
