Internet start-upsAlmost a quarter of British people dream of setting up a business, with internet start-ups the most popular choice, according to Nectar Business.

The Nectar Business survey found that of those wanting to start a business, 13 per cent would choose an internet-based firm, nine per cent a tea or coffee shop and seven per cent a pub or restaurant.

British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) spokeswoman Fiona Cunningham said that home-based internet businesses were always popular because they are cost-efficient, and that more people were likely to follow their dream in the coming months due to the high level of redundancies.

“People have always been keen to start internet-based businesses from home because it is a cheaper option,”

said BCC spokeswoman Fiona Cunningham.

“As a lot of white collar people are being made redundant, there is a chance that they will use it as an opportunity to make a lifetime dream come true. We expect an increase in start-ups due to that.

“Recession or not, it is always a good time to start a business, as long as you make sure you have a clear objective and a business plan,” she added. “You should bounce ideas off people who have run businesses in the same sector before, and take their advice.”
