Centre for Entrepreneurs

The Centre for Entrepreneurs promotes the role of entrepreneurs in creating economic growth and social wellbeing. It is home to national enterprise campaign, StartUp Britain.

The Centre is an independent non-profit think tank founded and chaired by Sunday Times columnist and serial entrepreneur Luke Johnson and housed within the Legatum Institute.

The Centre researches and communicates the positive impact of entrepreneurs on the economy and society; defends entrepreneurs from over-regulation, unhelpful legislation, over-taxation and monopolistic large firms; and encourages entrepreneurship as a career choice.

The activities of the Centre are focused on four core areas:

  • Advocacy: promoting entrepreneurship in the media and with government,
  • Research and campaigns: especially initiatives that improve the public perception of entrepreneurs as well as encouraging more people to become entrepreneurs,
  • Thought-leadership: generating white papers, pamphlets, events and articles aimed at the defence and promotion of entrepreneurs,
  • Resources: providing guidance and support for entrepreneurs.

The Centre acts as a voice for individual entrepreneurs, big or small, aspiring to grow their businesses.
