Enterprise Nation was founded in 2005 by Emma Jones MBE. Its mission is to create an inspirational environment for business owners and would-be entrepreneurs, a supportive community, informational books and events, and a campaigning voice to help small businesses in the UK flourish.
Enterprise Nation is supported by a number of corporate partners that work with us to help people start and grow their own businesses.
The Enterprise Nation team is made up of small business owners and freelancers. Meet the core team below. We also work with other businesses and contractors to meet the demands of new projects. For example, we worked with the team at Click on our website and with photographer Ben Gold on the photos you see below and across the website.
