About us

No-one has been blessed with a ‘successful entrepreneur’ gene, so our mission is simple – we want to provide you with all the information and support you need to run your business through our step-by-step guides and professional suppliers.

Starting a new business can be a daunting task, but having clear, relevant information and support all in one place can help save you valuable time.

Made Not Born is a unique site that not only brings together expert guides and recommended products, but also points you towards a professional if you want to delegate one of the many tasks involved in starting up and running a successful business.

Neil Atkinson, the managing director at Made Not Born can speak from personal experience. He has started and successfully managed a number of businesses throughout his career, so knows how invaluable having the right support and specialist help can be. That’s why we hope you find everything you need here to help start your business and make it a success.
