The findings from the Snapshot make it clear that MPs need help in understanding the schemes, programmes and bodies that exist to help entrepreneurs.
At the launch of the Snapshot many of those attending made clear their support for schemes such as the EIS and SEIS which should not be lost. But otherwise the options can be confusing for them as well.
The Snapshot also brings up interesting findings related to the UK's possible withdrawal from Europe. Conservative MPs believe that such a move would help small businesses, whilst Labour MPs think it would hinder their development.
Really finding out what MPs think and what they know shows what action needs to be taken. In this case they need help understanding schemes so that they can, in turn, help businesses in their areas.
Small businesses and entrepreneurs are frequently cited as "the backbone of the economy" and "the engine room of growth" by UK politicians, but many do not know about the Government's policies to help them. New research from The Entrepreneurs Network and law firm Bircham Dyson Bell showed that around half of MPs haven't heard of many of the policies that have been introduced to help drive small business growth.
