2016 Report: Cities of Opportunity

When Business Models come first!

Both countries have a different vision of society. Their expectations are miles away from each other.

Approaches are different: Free Trade in France vs Fair Trade in the UK!

What is Britain’s Secret Weapon?

We all know that the UK always gets better results than France:

  • Growth Rate,
  • Unemployment Rate,
  • Financial services,
  • Digital industy,
  • Entrepreneurship…

Britain is far more business-friendly than France. Its ecosystem is one of the world’s most reliable and efficient. The UK’s Brexit will only strengthen its business environment even more, whatever “so-called experts” say. France is far behind in Doing Business 2017 and it is listed number 29.

As a good example, here are the latest numbers for incorporated companies in the United Kingdom – from Jan. 2017 till March 2017:

  • 170,143 company incorporations for that given period,
  • 108,919 dissolutions,
  • The total number of registered and active companies is  3,896,755
  • This gives us a net increase of 63,286 companies since 31st December 2016.
