The Entrepreneurs Network launches APPG for Entrepreneurship


Today, the APPG for Entrepreneurship (of which The Entrepreneurs Network is Secretariat) was launched at a reception in the Houses of Parliament.

Entrepreneurs, journalists, politicians and key individuals from within the entrepreneurial ecosystem joined us to hear Business Secretary Sajid Javid extoll the virtues of entrepreneurship, outline how the government is supporting business owners, and discuss how his childhood gave him a unique understanding of the fashion world…

The group, which is chaired by Alan Mak MP, will focus on four key areas in its first 12 months: exporting, enterprise education, female founders and tax reform. Here’s why we became Secretariat. And below is all the press coverage the APPG’s launch received:
