Enterprise Nation was founded in 2005 by  Emma Jones MBE  also co-founder of national enterprise campaign StartUp Britain.

Esther said: “It makes a great deal of sense to extend a nationally-integrated programme of support to entrepreneurs as they build a business. Enterprise Nation already has a proven track record in producing engaging, practical and accessible workshops and events as well as providing a much-needed campaigning voice for the small business community.

Emma Jones, founder of Enterprise Nation, said: “The world of business has changed beyond recognition. As a consequence the support and business environment must quickly adapt.

“We think it’s important to extend the support for early-stage entrepreneurship across the UK - whether it’s gazelle-like tech firms - or people looking to improve their work life balance while providing for their family.

“We want to help West London entrepreneurs build profitability whilst making the most of a skill or passion.

“Over the coming years we’ll see more, not less people working in this way and choosing a life of self-employment and enterprise. We need to be ready for that and deliver the advice and support they need to succeed.”
