Raw Business offers Entrepreneurs online networking facility. Following the announcement by Coalition Government Minister Mark Prisk that the funding for Business Link is to be halted, Raw Business, a private sector online business networking and publishing company, has made the decision to open its network to the whole of the UK business community free of charge.

Raw Business was founded in 2007 and aims to provide business owners and entrepreneurs with the tools, support and guidance they need to make their business a success. The online network aims to bring entrepreneurs and business owners together, enabling them to forge strong, lasting business relationships and is based on the most popular Social Networking models.

Historically, the network has had free and subscription based membership options but following the announcement by Mr Prisk, Raw Business MD Bradley Chapman has made the decision to open up the network. Bradley told us “Business owners and entrepreneurs can sometimes feel very isolated and not everyone is good at everything. A support mechanism where the experiences of other business owners can be shared, despite any rivalry, can really help to make the business community and the UK as whole, a better place.”

These sentiments were echoed by Government Minister Simon Burns who, in a statement to Raw Business said “The services offered and the opportunities presented through companies like Raw Business can potentially be a vital lifeline for business and entrepreneurs alike.

With austerity measures being introduced in public sector funded projects such as Business Link, it is good to see that the private sector is ready and willing to come together in these tough times. “

As well as the online network, Raw Business also publishes a monthly business magazine title raw Business Magazine written by business owners, for business owners but also including interviews with some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs. The magazine is now in its twelfth edition, has a print run of 15,000 and has both printed and digital versions.
