Small businesses outside of London more resilient

A recent report has shown that small firms based outside of London survive longer, showing they are more resilient to economic instability.

The research, published by eBay, shows that fewer than two out of five startup businesses survive more than five years, a stark contrast to the figures coming from other areas of the country, with 45 per cent in the South West of England, 44 per cent in the East and 42 per cent in Scotland.
