This week, the UK Budget announcement saw the government look beyond Silicon Roundabout and recognise the innovation and entrepreneurship that’s evident nationwide,investing £11 million in tech incubators in Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield.

Two new “enterprise zones” are also set to be created in Plymouth and Blackpool, with the eight that already exist across the UK being expanded. As current “Enterprise Zones” have already created more than 12,500 jobs and attracted £2 billion private investment, this can only be good news. A Budget that encompasses nationwide innovation is certainly a leap forward from where we were five years ago in the UK.
