The return of the entrepreneurs

Newspapers routinely praise entrepreneurs as the lifeblood of the economy and complain that they don’t get proper credit as wealth creators.

They follow this up by hardly ever writing about actual entrepreneurs.

When it comes to it, papers always prefer the story about the giant company over the small one.

Small business issues do get covered, the travails they face examined and exposed.

James Hurley, the enterprise editor at The Times, is terrific at this.

But it still feels like an imbalance.

The Evening Standard is having a go at righting that.

Its Entrepreneurs column returns every Monday, a showcase for small London firms with big potential futures.

If you have a London start-up that has an interesting story to tell and has not done much press, please do pitch to 

Companies must have been trading for over a year and have annual sales of over £1m.

To be considered, businesses must be able to supply a high-resolution picture of the founders and be willing to disclose turnover in the paper. Please keep all pitch emails to 200 words or less.

Best of luck.

Press release of the day

Men are more likely to ask for a pay rise than women, says this from Cendex.

Even entry level male staff are more than twice as likely as females in the C-suite to demand more money.

The government has lately suspended the enforcement of gender pay gap reporting.

Scott Walker at Cendex says: “During the pandemic, some organisations put a hold on their gender pay gap reporting. While such a move may have been necessary during a challenging time, it’s essential that awareness of, and action against, pay inequality does not stop.”
