Our aim is to help you to change your organisation through the power of the entrepreneurial mindset
The entrepreneurial mindset offers powerful advantages when used in strategic planning, leadership and organisational transformation. On this page you can discover how we can support you in your efforts to use the mindset to build a successful organisation. We support start-ups, corporate entrepreneurs, education providers and healthcare organisations.
START-UPS People can use the mindset to become a self-employed individual or to become an entrepreneur that runs a business that creates employment for others. We support individuals and teams to use the mindset in the planning and launch of start-ups, and in the running, scaling and growth of businesses.
CORPORATE ENTREPRENEURS Entrepreneurial ways of thinking and acting, often known as intrapreneurship, can help employees and leaders. We support organisations to use the mindset in nurturing greater innovation and risk taking, in successful organisational change and in the development of an entrepreneurial culture.
EDUCATION PROVIDERS The entrepreneurial mindset is relevant to all levels of education provider: school, secondary, higher education and continuing professional development. We enable use of the mindset in curriculum development and teaching in all academic disciplines. We train leaders, academics and professional support staff.
HEALTHCARE ORGANISATIONS There is worldwide interest in using the entrepreneurial mindset in healthcare. We enable use of the mindset, blending traditional healthcare values with innovation, with the aim of improving the quality of care, health and well-being of people of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds.
We provide leadership Master Classes to support organisations who want to help their employees and leaders to become more entrepreneurial. The mindset brings real benefits to teams and is a powerful force for driving change in organisations. Our Master Classes cover a wide range of business sectors, education and healthcare.
The entrepreneurial mindset offers many benefits for organisations. The mindset enables every person to make their best contribution. Organisations can get the very best from each employee. Leaders & managers can release untapped human potential. Employees with the mindset transform the organisational culture.
An online Master Class is a live 2 hour event facilitated by the Director of the Network. The focus is on engaging exercises and discussions that will help participants to quickly understand the mindset and be able to put it into practice.
Each Master Class is carefully tailored to the backgrounds of the participants and the context of their organisation and business sector. Practical exercises enable the co-creation of a shared understanding and practical actions.

We are developing a series of entrepreneurial mindset awards that will recognise organisations for their commitment, performance and impact as entrepreneurial organisations. Applying for an award supports team building, strategic planning and organisational transformation.
What makes our awards distinctive is that the awards process itself is entrepreneurial i.e. reducing bureaucracy, delivering value for money and reducing the time from application to award whilst maintaining quality and reputation. Our awards recognise international excellence.
We are recruiting individuals to give expert advice which will help to develop the process by which organisations can apply for awards and the criteria by which they will be judged. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our pilot of the awards process currently involves organisations in 8 countries: Egypt🇪🇬, England🏴, Ireland🇮🇪, Italy🇮🇹, Malaysia🇲🇾, Norway🇳🇴, Scotland🏴 and South Africa🇿🇦. The pilot will establish the final process and judging criteria.
Organisations that are recognised with our awards will be eligible for further support to help them to consolidate and scale up their success. Award winners will be welcomed into an international network of leading entrepreneurial organisations.
We provide a small library of PDFs and videos about the entrepreneurial mindset on each page of the website. Check back regularly to see the latest additions.
