'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

As I enter my 40th year, I get reflective, writes Tim Campbell, founder of Bright Ideas Trust and winner of The Apprentice.
I think back to an apparently simpler time when I had this crazy idea to help more people start their own businesses. Ten years ago I founded Bright Ideas Trust, a charity established to support the next generation of small business owners. I started it because I was frustrated with the lack of opportunity for people under 30 to get access to significant start-up investment capital and advice from successful business owners, as well as ad hoc guidance from expert business advisors.
A decade later, the environment for aspiring small business owners from underserved backgrounds, and the wider start-up market, are much more positive. We now have open access to information online and from institutions such as Mintel and the British Library’s Business and Intellectual Property Centre. We also have access to start-up and growth funding, democratised by peer-to-peer platforms and social networks such as Funding Circle.
Having helped start more than 250 businesses ranging from hairdressers to cleaning firms, we have seen what works and what doesn’t. Every business we have supported has been founded by someone who ‘knows their onions’. It is not enough to have the desire to be a florist if you don’t know your chrysanthemums from your carnations. Doing what they know and love makes the start-up process easier.
