What’s inside? 

  • “Venture capitalists are evil”: We pitch Karen Darby (founder of SimplySwitch) against David Peto (founder of Aframe) in this month’s great debate.
  • Q&A with Toby Perkins, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Small Business.
  • Go compare! Go Compare! It’s the advert we all love to hate. But does it work? Founder Hayley Parsons gives us the grit on the Gio Compario campaign.
  • He’s competed in the Olympics six times. He’s won 47 international medals. British pro-swimmer Mark Foster knows exactly what it takes to deliver results. He’s got a few (gold) nuggets for Real Business readers.
  • It’s the ultimate powerhouse of innovation. Here are the places to see – and be seen – in Silicon Valley.
  • Former rugby-pro Alastair Lukies has performed the seemingly impossible task of getting the UK’s banks and mobile operators to collaborate. His business, AIM-listed Monitise, is one of our top 20 businesses of 2011.
  • Mumpreneur Annabel Karmel, best-selling author and family food expert, gives us a glimpse into her work wardrobe.

And much more!
