Everyday Entrepreneurs Inquiry Holds First Session on Skills for Next Generation

The All Party Parliamentary Small Shops Group held the first oral evidence session of its Everyday Entrepreneurs inquiry today, looking at the skills that the next generation of entrepreneurs need to succeed.

Chair of the All-Party Small Shops’ Group Simon Danzcuk MP said: “The first session of the Inquiry has highlighted the need for businesses and government to give the next generation of entrepreneurs the right conditions in which to succeed. Small shops are well placed to foster an entrepreneurial spirit as they act as community hubs, making an essential social and economic contribution to their local area.”

The inquiry session featured a panel of industry experts, including Martin Christian-Kent (People 1st), Robert Ashton (Social Entrepreneur), Dr Jutta Tobias (Cranfield University) and Professor Adrian Blackledge (Birmingham Business School).

The consultation will run until 17th July and findings of the inquiry will be submitted to the Department Business, Innovation and Skills. The consultation document is available here: http://www.acs.org.uk/?p=3085
