Wealth-creating responses to Brexit

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Aurik Business Accelerator’s Pavlo Phitidis for his weekly small business feature.

Phitidis discussed a number of entrepreneurial responses to Brexit and how to build a business in an inward facing environment, and with a depreciating currency.

He also took a listener's call and gave him some advice on getting funding.

Raising funding requires practice. Approach the least likely funder first and refine your approach as you get rejected.
