The enterprise campaign Growth Britain has launched a new online initiative to encourage members of the public to propose new ideas to "get Britain back on track".
Growth Britain is inviting the public to pitch their ideas to help drive growth and positively shape the British enterprise landscape. This independent research will then be used to highlight those areas that have curbed the growth of British enterprise and provide practical solutions.
Growth Britain is run by Prelude Group and this latest campaign has the backing of Lord Young (pictured), enterprise adviser to the prime minister.
Duncan Cheatle, CEO of the Prelude Group, said: "It's great that we have pulled out of recession but we still have a long way to go. Growth Britain is our way of crowd-sourcing practicable ideas that can help accelerate Britain's economic growth. It's easy to spot what's not working, but what's much harder is to see what might be done to help drive growth."
Respondents will be able to comment, vote and contribute their own ideas as well as challenge others. Those with the best contributions, that have the greatest impact, will be invited to join Duncan Cheatle and Lord Young at Downing Street to further explore their initiatives.
Lord Young said: "I'm delighted to be working with Prelude and Growth Britain, lending my support to this initiative to garner the best ideas. I look forward to inviting the best contributors to a round table discussion at Number 10."
