UKBAA statement on triggering Article 50
Jenny Tooth OBE, CEO of UKBAA, said:
“We know that with Brexit comes uncertainty, but we are looking ahead with optimism and see this as a golden opportunity for British businesses to flourish. The UK has an exceptional track record for innovation and a post-Brexit Britain could see innovative high-growth businesses generating even greater value – right across the country.
“Yes, there will be challenges, particularly around access to talent, and these may well dominate the headlines, but opportunities to forge new links with international markets give cause for confidence. At UKBAA we will be continuing our work to build a connected supply of finance for growth businesses to support them on their journey from startup through to scale up. The UK has an abundance of fantastic entrepreneurs and high-growth early-stage businesses and we believe the future for them is bright.”
