The UK is currently experiencing something of a peak of entrepreneurial talent, with almost half a million new businesses started here in 2013. Although the country is now well on the road to recovery from recession, the financial climate remains a challenging one, especially for start-up businesses who lack the financial security and established client base of larger businesses. Therefore, for prudent new business owners, any service they can make use of to help minimise business running costs is a godsend.
This is where Vonage’s low cost, unlimited international calling service comes in. As a leading ‘VoIP’ – Voice over Internet Protocol – phone provider, Vonage is able to offer low cost, unlimited international calls directly from your home phone by utilising your existing broadband connection. This facility is perfect for home/small business owners looking to make professional sounding business calls from a home office, without having to fork out for costly second phone line installation or monthly line rental. You can even choose the area code and phone number to suit your business and clients. This, along with visual voicemail, 3-way calling and call waiting facilities, makes for an incredibly professional international business calling packaging, all at a low price.
Vonage is genuinely passionate about helping new business, and testament to this is their recent partnership with the National Business Awards, which will see the company team up with the NBAs to launch the inaugural Duke of York New Entrepreneur of the Year Award later this year to the UK’s brightest new business leader. Recognising enterprise excellence, innovation and ethics, the 13th National Business Awards celebrates a range of achievements through honours including the Inflexion International Growth Business of the Year, the ICAEW Sustainable Business Award, the Smith & Williamson Entrepreneur of the Year and the QBE FTSE 100 Business of the Year.
On the partnership Vonage’s Managing Director, Simon Burckhardt, had this to say “As an enabler of the UK’s small business, particularly home-based business, with its award-winning internet telephony services, Vonage is proud to support The Duke of York New Entrepreneur of the Year Award. We look forward to working with the National Business Awards in 2014 to celebrate and support Britain’s brightest new business leaders.”
