Many people have a business idea but don't know where to start, how to start or where to do their research to get going. Maybe COVID had spurred business ideas on, or there are people in mind who this may apply to?
There have been 835,000 new businesses registered in the UK, in the past year (February 20-21) whilst in an active pandemic. COVID may have unlocked the next round of successful startups. Taking the time to plan for the future when the world went into lockdown. With everything turning online overnight and eCommerce growing by 46% in 2020 (ONS) many industries have had to adapt to being online as a new way of life and business.
Not knowing how long the pandemic will last, online is secure - businesses online will continue to bloom even after the pandemic has finished. Staying at home due to COVID, home deliveries have become much more popular, due to minimal to no contact with others. Such as cake deliveries, fresh fruit and vegetable delivery boxes along with meat orders to your door, products which can be posted, allowing many more people to have access if they are unable to travel, resulting in a much wider reach and target audience. Many businesses have the chance to startup in such strange times. Now is the time, make it happen.
