Enterprise for everyone

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

Our purpose is to support our members in developing and continuously improving their enterprising skills allowing them to maximise both their personal potential and their wider contribution to the growth and success of UK PLC.

We have more than 30,000 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, business owners looking to grow their business, managers working in an enterprising way, mentors and support professionals, and recognised learning providers.

We offer enterprise related training and qualifications, enterprise events and enterprise resources working with a range of private and public sector partners and delivering through a network of Centres of Enterprise Excellence and Enterprise Academies.
