General Election 2019: The Small Business Debate

General Election 2019: The Small Business Debate

Which political party is offering the best package of policies to support Britain’s growing army of small businesses? 

Find out on 25 November when Enterprise Nation and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) host an exclusive hustings-style debate in partnership with IPSE, the association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed, The Entrepreneurs Network (TEN) and digital coalition Coadec.

The event will be hosted in ICAEW’s Great Hall in the heart of the city of London. 
The evening will see top ranking business representatives from Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrats, Greens and the Brexit party outline their small business policies in front of an audience of entrepreneurs and hosted by Dan Thomas, associate editor of the Financial Times.  

'The voice of small businesses has been lost'

Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones MBE said: “The voice of small businesses has been lost as the tumultuous political events of the past three years have played out.  This event seeks to find out respective party policies for the ever growing small business sector made up of freelancers and tech founders, sole traders and limited company owners.  

“What are they doing to help small firms tackle Brexit, how are they planning to open up new markets, tackle high street issues, simplify tax, and how important are small businesses in the battle against climate change? 

“We’ll be exploring all of this and more at the debate.”
