The Entrepreneurs Network is independent, non-profit and non-partisan. We support entrepreneurs by:

  • Producing cutting-edge research outlining the benefits of easing unnecessary burdens upon enterprise;
  • Hosting regular events to bridge the gap between the aspirations of the entrepreneurial community and policy makers;
  • Building a network of entrepreneurs who are keen to improve the public policy debate;
  • Championing entrepreneurship and making the case for a more entrepreneurial society.

We are also the Secretariat of the APPG for Entrepreneurship. The APPG for Entrepreneurship was set up to encourage, support and promote entrepreneurship and to engage with entrepreneurs; and to ensure that Parliament is kept up to date on what is needed to create and sustain the most favourable conditions for entrepreneurship.
