Our Silicon Beach interview specials continue. This time with Peter Smithson from Kingston Smith accountants, who specialise in entrepreneurial and creative businesses.

I caught up with him to find out what’s so different about working with creative individuals and companies working in the world of innovation. We talked about:

  • Why they chose to work with creative industries
  • The most important considerations of start-ups
  • What to consider when setting up as a freelancer
  • The issues larger entrepreneurial companies need to think about
  • The issues of going international
  • Why it’s better to plan than to try to unpick afterwards

If you’re in London, you should look out for Silicon Beach’s upcoming event Silicon Beached. It features 10 amazing creative, strategic and digital women who’ll be sharing their wisdom. If it’s anything like last year’s event, it will be amazing.
