The UK is a hub for business; benefiting from both its ubiquitous language (English) and its geographical location as a hub between the USA and Europe, Britain is an ideal place to start up a business. In order to ensure that the UK stays at the head of the pack for not only economic prosperity, but also technical innovation, the UK has a wide range of visas to help entrepreneurs who wish to relocate to the country.
