Business Link is a UK government online resource which provides all the information one needs for businesses, from large organisations to grass root start-ups. 
An online portal with information about registering your company, regulation guidance, best practise case studies, funding options and wider support.

From experience this is more than just an online resource and regular courtesy calls to "find out how we were getting on" were part of the service.

Why not develop and online start-up specific resource like Business Link.
A focused resource like this could go beyond the basics to include a networking portal, host 12 month mentorship programe (mentors could agree to offer a set number of hours a week to mentor a viable start-up of their choice). One of the most useful resources would be to help start-ups identify creative profit generating options in an environment where the norm is ever changing.

The possibilities and extent of support and information that an online resource like this could provide are endless so identifying key elements and working from there would be good.
