On occasion of World Entrepreneurs’ Day, a global event that raises awareness of entrepreneurs and the work they do, Companies House has launched a new campaign to help inspire the country’s next generation of entrepreneurs.

The #GetBizzy campaign, launched in partnership with the Great British Entrepreneurship Awards, is aimed to help 16-24 year olds take their business ideas to the next level.

According to the register, the number of young directors aged 16-24 has grown by 35 per cent over the last five years, from 87,477 in 2014 to 117,810 as of July this year.

"As an organisation, we aim to support the government’s Industrial Strategy by driving confidence in the UK economy," said chief executive of Companies House, Louise Smyth.

"It’s incredibly important, therefore, to recognise both the work of young entrepreneurs and the positive contribution they are making to the UK’s business environment."

Over the coming months, the #GetBizzy campaign will feature guest blog posts from organisations across the UK who support young entrepreneurs.
