Entrepreneurship

Innovating in Entrepreneurship services

Supporting Entrepreneurship initiatives internationally

Entrepreneurial Economy

The world of work had changed.  People skip from job to job.  Companies hire and fire, upsize and downsize at short notice.  Taking an independent path is more and more popular.   New technology and new thinking has made starting out on your own dramatically cheaper and easier to do.

Becoming an entrepreneur is a choice many people are taking.  People who want a way out of a job they don’t enjoy or a career they are no longer interested in.  Through social entrepreneurship, some see it as a way of tackling social issues that governments can’t or won’t.

We have helped hundreds of people build their own business, for profit and for good.  On this page, you can see some of what we have done, and some of what they have achieved.
