In the wake of Black Lives Matter protests across the world, Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones shares an update for our community.
Enterprise Nation exists to help people start and grow their own business. We believe entrepreneurship should be a viable option for every person in the land, regardless of their background. To that end, the support we offer has always been inclusive and accessible by design.
In light of recent events, we're carefully and honestly reviewing the businesses we profile and feature at events and online, because having diverse and relatable role models can provide the spark and confidence for others looking to start up or opt for growth.
We're taking a hard look at the make-up of our team and board, as we know great companies are founded on diverse views based on the make-up of the community they serve. And we'll commission new advice to help other small businesses understand how to start and grow with diversity and talent in mind.
As members of the Enterprise Nation community, you'll hold us to account on our words and deeds. We'll review, learn and revise and hopefully inform others along the way.
In the lens of Enterprise Nation, entrepreneurship matters, and our job is to continue to make this accessible to all.
