The Entrepreneurs Network is independent, non-profit and non-partisan, sitting within the highly respected Adam Smith Institute, one of the world’s leading think tanks.

Who We Are


The Entrepreneurs Network is a think tank designed to bring entrepreneurs to the forefront of political discourse and help make Britain the best place in the world to start and grow a business.

We will produce research outlining the benefits of easing unnecessary burdens upon enterprise; host high-profile events to bridge the gap between the aspirations of the entrepreneurial community and policy makers; and champion entrepreneurs, making the case for a more entrepreneurial society.
