A quarter of a million people engaged in entrepreneurship

By Andrew Devenport, Chief Executive - Youth Business International

Global Entrepreneurship Week has this year reached over 279,500 people!

That’s an amazing number of people who have learnt about entrepreneurship as a career choice, or been helped along their entrepreneurial journey.

It matters, because we desperately need to encourage more entrepreneurs in the UK, to create more jobs and bring more innovation to our communities.

And whilst one week can never be enough, we firmly believe that 7 days to highlight all the fantastic work that goes on all year round, and raise the profile of entrepreneurship to reach those people who had never thought of starting their own business, is an important contribution and one that Youth Business International is proud to be behind.

Thank you for your support.
