Enterprise Manifesto

It seems everyone's up for writing a manifesto these days! Even, the UK's political parties have had a go at it recently..

Lat week we reported that techUK, a leading body & trade association for tech companies in the UK, had decided to publish their own Digital Economy Manifestoand today we return with the timely news that the National Enterprise Network, the membership body for enterprise support organisations, has published “Enterprise, the Economy and Society – an enterprise manifesto statement from National Enterprise Network."

Much like techUK (albeit not over 55 pages!) the Enterprise Manifesto Statement from National Enterprise Network is a call-to-action, come demand list for the next UK government, setting out three clear areas of enterprise which they believe any new Government should acknowledge.

The membership body representing the enterprise support sector across England, but the demands to be fair, could relate easily to the enterprise sector throughout the UK or perhaps even further afield.

National Enterprise Network Manifesto

The three enterprise policies they want to see acknowledged are:

1. Belief in the value of local support
2. The credibility of all start ups – regardless of size or potential
3. Admission of potential issues presented by the removal of EU funds

The three key policies focus on the value of enterprise locally and nationally.

NEN believes in the value of local support and looks at the importance of, and impact being made by their members within their local economies. They highlight how their members are positioned as true enterprise hubs within their local communities and flag up the need for LEPs and Growth Hubs to work more collaboratively with local partners.

NEN have made a call for all startups, regardless of size, to be given credibility and support, and have highlighted how helping all entrepreneurs is more important than ever in the post-Brexit economy.

Lastly, a call is made to acknowledge that leaving the EU will lead to potential issues when EU funds are removed. The funds, which have provided support to a wide range of people, must be replaced while the application process and delivery mechanisms should be streamlined and simplified.

The document is available to view on National Enterprise Network's website
