As an English born entrepreneur, New York-based Business President, Lewis Morton is a strong believer in the importance of expanding horizons through business travel. Here, the QQ figurehead explains, why New York is a great city for budding business owners.
The serial entrepreneur, business consultant and coach, Lewis Morton began his entrepreneurial journey in the UK with his first business in music production. After selling that business, Morton threw himself into the sales and marketing world, gaining practical sales skills while learning about self-motivation, true leadership, business networking and business ownership. Throughout his successes in the UK, Morton always had his sights set bigger. Lewis was drawn to the USA and was particularly interested in New York as he saw it as a great place for expanding his business.
The Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute found that from 138 countries, the United States is unparalleled when it comes to providing the best environment for cultivating entrepreneurial individuals and opportunities. Regarded as a haven for entrepreneurship, earlier this year New York was voted the second most entrepreneurial American city in 2018. Every month, New York flaunts an astounding 410 new entrepreneurs out of 100,000 adults.
President, Lewis Morton appreciates his journey as a British entrepreneur in America and feels that his passion for travel has helped him expand his business horizons. Morton has before discussed how integral travel plays in the business development of an entrepreneur and he is often found travelling around the globe representing QQ at various networking and speaking events.
