12 July 2016 UK government needs to encourage business leaders and entrepreneurs after EU referendum

Government must incentivise and encourage entrepreneurs to keep coming to the UK to set up and grow their business after the results of the EU referendum, says Kobi Omenaka a digital marketing specialist who runs a podcast that speaks to business leaders.

Omenaka has concerns that the uncertain political climate could make the UK less attractive for game changers – those whose contribution to the economy should not be underestimated. He points to Brazilian born Roberta Lucca, a recent guest on his popular podcast, to highlight his point.

Lucca is the name behind the darkly humorous, over-the-top and notoriously difficult operation sim game, Surgeon Simulator. The game recently added a hit update that lets users operate on US presidential candidate, Donald Trump. After migrating to the UK, Lucca has set up two companies with a number of others already in the works.

Bossa Studios, the firm behind the Donald Trump Surgery Simulator, was the first company set up by serial entrepreneur Lucca. Her second, WonderLuk, is now well established and successful, selling avant-garde 3D printed jewellery and accessories and working with London museums and galleries.

Kobi Omenaka, founder and CEO or Kobestarr Digital, said, “It’s hugely important that the UK now works hard to attract innovative business leaders from the EU and around the world after the public voted to leave the economic bloc.

“Roberta is just one example of an entrepreneur migrating to the UK and setting up a business that provides jobs, boosts the economy and is making real waves. We need to encourage individuals with the drive and passion to consider the UK as a top destination when it comes to setting up their own business by providing incentives.”

The Kobestarr Digital podcast features long-form interview conversations with the many business leaders that Omenaka has met since starting the digital marketing agency. Guests so far have included Daniel Johnson of Shoprocket and Laura Hunt of BNI Central London.

Episode 10 of the podcast will feature entrepreneur Lu Li from Blooming Founders, a social business network for early stage female entrepreneurs where ambitious women can get feedback on their business ideas.

Lu Li was inspired to create the Blooming Founders network because there wasn’t one available when she would have benefitted from advice from like-minded individuals. During the podcast Li will also talk about her forthcoming book ‘Dear Female Founders’ that will give first hand advice to those beginning their start up journey.
