Enterprise for everyone

The Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs is for anyone who is thinking about starting or already running their own business, and for those who support them.

Our purpose is to support our members with all aspects of enterprise including start-up, funding, growth, marketing and more.

We have members from across the spectrum of enterprise activity – students who have yet to start a business, entrepreneurs in the early stages of running their business, managers working in an enterprising way, mentors and support professionals, and recognised learning providers.
