START BUSINESS BOX BROCHURE 
What are founders and industry experts saying about Business Box? 
"Business Box from Start.biz is a great concept for start ups. As a new business owner you can spend a load of time researching and vetting the best providers for all the professional services you need. With Business Box, Start.biz manages this all for you, so you know you are working with the best people in each specialist area. It's also a really proactive approach - talking to business owners about what they are going to need, so that the support is already there when they do need it." 
 
Adam Parker 
Chief Commercial Officer at Penny 
"Business Box is a useful tool for first time entrepreneurs. From working with and consulting hundreds of aspiring business owners, once you’ve planned and registered your business, the question many ask is what now? 
 
It’s either the entrepreneur doesn’t know what services they need or it is too expensive to purchase this support as a start-up or early-stage venture. Business Box is a service which solves these issues with a comprehensive package of accounting, legal, digitalisation and much more for a low-cost monthly cost." 
 
Nethan Punj 
Lecturer and Advisor in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship at University College Birmingham 
"When you start a business, there are so many things that you have to do as a founder! This is why it is key to think wisely about where you spend your time when starting off. Business Box by Start.biz is a fantastic way to do this! The support means that you can be confident that all the essentials you need are covered and done right, freeing up your time to focus on building your business. It saves you time, it saves you money and it saves you from making mistakes." 
 
Daniel Evans 
CEO of BEC and FORWARD Programme Director 
"I really wish that this service had been available when I started my own business 8 years ago. It would have saved me days of time and a substantial amount of money. In my opinion, an absolute ‘must have’ for all new / first time founders."
