At the moment I’m part of a team of 14 people working on a new magazine called UpStart which is part of our Postgraduate Diploma course.
UpStart is aimed at the UK startup community, hoping to provide something more useful, interesting and relevant to people who have small businesses than traditional business media which tends to cater for bigger, less creative, higher turnover businesses. We want to speak to the people working for themselves, either on their own or in a small team, avoiding the ‘men in suits’ image of the business media. People who don’t so much see themselves as businesswomen and businessmen but people who have their own businesses.
Currently we are working on issue two of the magazine but you can see issue one here on Issuu, any feedback gratefully received.
