Launched earlier this year, Smarta is shaking-up the way business advice and support is provided in the UK. We believe the best business advice doesn’t come from textbooks, but people who’ve been there and done it – and are out there doing it now. Built on a web 2.0 platform, Smarta acts as a way of sharing the insights of established entrepreneurs, while also providing a network where start-ups, inventors and small businesses can exchange ideas, experiences and contacts.
Over the last eight months we’ve filmed 80+ video interviews with business leaders, politicians and enterprising individuals such as Dragons’ Den’s Theo Paphitis and Deborah Meaden, Lib Dem shadow chancellor Vince Cable, Lastminute.com co-founder Martha Lane Fox, Bebo founder Michael Birch, lingerie model turned entrepreneur Caprice and Apprentice winners Tim Campbell and Michelle Dewberry.
Smarta Enterprises Ltd, (the company behind Smarta.com) is a new and energetic London-based start-up with global ambitions. Backed by an impressive line up of entrepreneurs, Smarta also has serious corporate backing with RBS/Natwest, Vodafone an Intuit as founding partners.
