Careers at Enterprise Nation

Enterprise Nation is a small business network and business support provider. Its aim is to help people turn their good ideas into great businesses – through expert advice, events, acceleration, diagnostics and networking. Enterprise Nation was founded in 2005 by Emma Jones MBE , also co-founder of national enterprise campaign StartUp Britain. She is author of best-selling business books including Spare Room StartupWorking 5 to 9Go GlobalStart a Business for £99, the StartUp Kit, and Going for Growth.  In 2017 the Institute of Charted Accountants England and Wales (ICAEW) announced it was to collaborate with Enterprise Nation to start building a world-leading adviser platform. In 2018, Richard Harpin, the entrepreneur behind global home emergency repair firm HomeServe, took a minority stake in the company as part of a drive to create a ‘more entrepreneurial Britain.’ 


Enterprise Nation is supported by a number of corporate partners that work with us to help people start and grow their own businesses.
