RESEARCH has revealed that the East of England has more budding entrepreneurs than the rest of the UK - and Cambridgeshire is one of the best performing areas.
The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor survey revealed that the overall share of the UK population considering starting their own business declined between 2004 and 2005. However, in the East of England, the share of the population keen to become the next Richard Branson or Jacqueline Gold has increased.
This information comes from the East of England Development Agency's recent "state of the regional economy" report - the first part of the process to review the region's economic strategy, devised to help improve the economic performance and quality of life of all those who live and work in the East of England.
The report also revealed that Cambridgeshire is one of the best performing counties in the East of England in terms of employment rates.
