Atos: ‘Digital Society: A Vision for Great British Enterprise’
WPI Strategy has worked closely with Atos to produce a new report on the importance of digital technology to the success of new SMEs and start-ups. The report, entitled ‘Digital Society: A Vision for Great British Enterprise‘, looks at the local economies of 43 towns and cities, analysing how well they promote entrepreneurship and enterprise.
The data ranked the towns and cities as ‘spearheads’, ‘strivers’ and ‘stepping-stones’, with Reading coming out top as the highest ranked town for enterprise potential. The report recommends the Government act to help start-ups and SMEs make the most of digital technology to boost their businesses.
The report’s key recommendations are:
- Digitally enable entrepreneurs and enterprise by recalibrating business support
- Create Enterprise Zones that are focus on using digital technology to aid entrepreneurs
- Implement Enterprise Accounts
- Use the power of big data to help entrepreneurs overcome their local challenges
