The rise in company formations during the third quarter shows that entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the town.
UK (PRWEB UK) 4 December 2012
Stevenage: There was a rise in company formations during the third quarter of the year in Stevenage, according to a new report by leading company formation specialists, Duport.co.uk. A total of 153 companies were registered during this period, representing a 16% rise on the third quarter of 2011.
The report also reveals that the month of July saw more new companies formed that any other July on record for the town. This impressive statistic could be the linked to the economic boost brought about by the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the Olympic Games.
However, the third quarter also saw a rise in company closures, meaning that despite the increase in company formations, net company growth stayed the same as in 2011.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis said:
“Like the rest of the UK, Stevenage is facing a difficult economic climate. However, the rise in company formations during the third quarter shows that entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the town.”
“The companies formed during the third quarter of the year will benefit from increased trade in the run up to Christmas, which should help strengthen their future prospects.”
