Lets make some noise and celebrate enterprise during Business Challenge Week 13th - 17th November 2017

Did you know that 95% of all business in the UK is a small business and the best designs in the world have always been BRITISH? However, for some reason, their ownership doesn't stay here as they are often bought out and invested in by global companies that see the merit within.  Global Enterprise Week is your week to reflect and think "is that something that I have in me?" 

Can you start a small British business that can grow into a global brand and attract the investment from within the UK? So to help you think deeper we are excited to announce that this year Imberhorne will have some local global entrepreneurs as guest speakers who have done just that. Some you will recognise some you might not but they all have one thing in common they have all achieved just that.  

So if you would like to the story of local entrepreneurs and how they turned an idea into a global brand and found the money to achieve it sign up for a seat by seeing your head of faculty and pop along each lunchtime between 1.30pm and 2pm and have a chat.
