A Minister for Enterprise?

A Minister for Enterprise?
Entrepreneurs-in-residence are to be found in innovation centres, science parks, startup communities and venture capital companies, both leading their own and supporting other early-stage ventures. Is there not a role for them in universities, not-for-profit organisations and public bodies too?

The spot-light has been focused consistently onto emerging technologies, but turning ideas into innovations – the essence of to-day’s economy – has not traditionally been one of our strengths; and concerns are often to be heard that there are not enough talented entrepreneurs.

Start at the top: the next government should appoint a Minister for Enterprise, whose task should be to put an entrepreneur into a leadership role in every organisation, by:
• stimulating the better understanding of their skills
• promoting the development of their talents, and
• encouraging their contributions to all kinds of organisations.

Vote for enterprise!
