In the light of the report claiming that TV programmes such as The Apprentice and Dragon’s Den present an misleading image of entrepreneurialism in the UK, popular Dragon James Caan’s has announced that he set to launch a ‘school for recent company formation’ owners.
James Caan amassed his huge fortune in the recruitment and property sector, and has said that he wants to use his broad experience of as an entrepreneur, to work with start-up companies and help them avoid the many mistakes a lot of new entrepreneurs make.
Caan comments: ‘Forming your own company and starting to run your own business can be a very isolating. And, from my experience the information available is not hugely helpful. I want to take what I have learned and use it to help the next generation of entrepreneurs.”
“Running your own company is very much a learning experience, but it is one you don’t have to go through on your own. I can’t help but thinking that if I had had the help of something like my academy when I was starting out my entrepreneurial journey would have been a lot less painful at times.”
