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

We support entrepreneurs by:

  • Producing cutting-edge research outlining the benefits of easing unnecessary burdens upon enterprise;
  • Hosting regular events to bridge the gap between the aspirations of the entrepreneurial community and policy makers;
  • Building a network of entrepreneurs who are keen to improve the public policy debate;
  • Championing entrepreneurship and making the case for a more entrepreneurial society.
