Startup Tracker


The StartUp Tracker is an authoritative statistic showing how many businesses are being set up each day in the UK, offering regular and accessible insight into the growing self-starter trend for the first time.

Emma Jones, business expert and StartUp Britain co-founder said: “It’s astonishing to think that in the last week alone 8,675 people decided to start up here in Britain.

“We’re seeing record numbers of people setting up a business. Our StartUp Tracker will offer a daily confidence boost to anyone thinking about starting up.

“We felt it was vitally important to capitalize on the emerging optimism in the start-up sector and our tracker statistics will not only make for interesting reading, we hope they will offer an Olympian boost to those who might find encouragement by finding out that they are not alone!

“We think our statistics have the potential to help deliver real benefit.”

The tracker has been created using data from Companies House and interpreted for the tracker by the Made Simple Group.

Made Simple’s CEO, Howard Graham said: “These stats are very telling about the optimism and momentum within the start-up sector – the StartUp Tracker makes this visible for all to see and plots the highs and lows as well as potentially making it possible for us to discover what makes certain days more attractive for setting up a business.”
