When a group of young, unemployed techies sets out to make a name for themselves in the UK market
A group of talented, young techies set out to become the first ever UK-based guerilla marketers.
The trio set out on a quest to make the UK a better place for entrepreneurs to operate.
They launched a new app called the ‘UK Business Network’ which they believe is a “great way to start an entrepreneurial journey in the tech industry.”
“The UK is one of the few countries in the world where we have this entrepreneurial mindset, we believe that the next great tech companies should be based here,” the trio said in a statement.
“It’s a challenge for the UK and the world, but it’s one that we believe will be worth it.”

“We’re proud to be the first UK business network that has set out a plan to grow the UK’s tech sector,” said co-founder Matt Tait, who founded his company on his own and later launched a number of others.
“This is a big step towards giving British startups a leg up on their European counterparts and making the UK the first place in the EU to offer a platform to facilitate such growth.”
The trio believe that their app will serve as a great stepping stone to the UK tech scene, and that the UK should be the country of choice for the next wave of global startups.
“It’s an incredibly challenging time for entrepreneurs in the U.K. It’s not an ideal time for a startup,” said Tait.
“There are a lot of opportunities out there, but the UK has always been a little bit more conservative and closed minded.
It seems like a place to be open and honest, and it’s a great opportunity to make your mark.”
The app was launched earlier this month and has already seen a significant boost in popularity.
It is available in the App Store and Google Play for free, and will be launched on Thursday, September 13.
The UK Business Network was created by a group consisting of five young tech-savvy, young entrepreneurs.
Their goal is to grow and empower the entrepreneurial scene in the country, with the goal of creating a “home for the tech start-ups.”
The group said the app will offer an alternative to other guerillas marketing programs.
“When we started out, we thought we’d create a platform for the local startup scene, but as the industry has matured, we’ve realised that there’s so much more that needs to be done,” said the group’s founder, Ryan Breen.
“We hope to change the way that the business community sees the startup community.”
