Angela Eagle, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills joined Labour in The City for a series of meetings across the Square Mile in December.
She spoke at a round table chaired by LiTC, which was attended by major banks, senior representatives from crowd funding, venture capital, Business Angels, as well as accountants and the business startup community.
After that Angela visited the RISE business escalator in East London. The escalator is hidden away at the back of a funky café and houses a number of exciting entrepreneurs from the tech and innovation sectors. Angela met an entrepreneur who makes a small computer for children to learn to code.
Probably more excitingly she also met some of the entrepreneurs’ dogs. Now, ask yourself – are you allowed to take you dog to work? Yet another reason why being an entrepreneur is cool.
