Stand-up at the Start-Up Hub Tuesday 04 October, 2011
“Showcasing talent, drive and diversity” – buildabrand represents a new era of technological innovation [at the Conservative Party Conference]
buildabrand were lucky enough to be selected as one of the final 9 ‘most innovative’ companies of 2011 – specially selected to showcase the diversity of new business to emerge from the government’s policy to back an entrepreneurial Britain. There’s a clear focus on innovation in technology, digital, creativity and on new engineering to make complex ideas a reality.
We will be exhibiting alongside other great companies who have launched since May 2010, including the Birmingham based Caribbean Catering Company which provides training to help get young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into work, Peelable Posters – yep, you guessed it, posters and print that peel off walls and the like, Smiley Talk – a 100% safe online community for schools and children, and OE Systems, a West Midlands start-up offering portable ‘power on the go’.

Why does the Conservative Party want start ups at their conference?
As Damian Collins MP so eloquently puts it - ‘small and start up businesses are part of the life blood of our economy and a key driver in growth’. However we stand politically, the government has set and improved conditions for new businesses and entrepreneurs [- like us, and lots of our customers!] by cutting corporation tax and scrapping hefty regulations. Phewf.
Where and when?
Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th October 2011
Conservative Party Conference, Manchester.
