Patrick Cahill, qLegal Coordinator and Solicitor, has written an article for the magazine LTE Today. In this piece, Patrick discusses the increase of small business initiatives and their benefits for economies and technological innovation. However, a number of challenges also go along with starting a business, leading many to fail within their first three years. National governments are increasing awareness of the need to support small businesses and evaluating the legal barriers they face. In addition, university based legal advice centres for start up and small business, such as qLegal, are also on the rise.
