Overview of Organisation

The Entrepreneurs Network (TEN) is a platform of programs and initiatives aimed at growing an entrepreneurial ecosystem that will become a think tank for creating jobs, accelerating innovation and strengthening good entrepreneurial and professional practice. Founded by entrepreneurs and businesses, The Network is open to businesses that seek to make a national impact.

  • Increasing understanding between the new and traditional elements of emerging startup communities and ecosystems including the constructive engagement of the public sector in supporting entrepreneur designed public programs.
  • Supporting the emergence of a new class of entrepreneurs with access to research, programs and resources inside The Network.
  • Connecting an emerging community of national startup policy advisors with a next-generation network of world-class entrepreneurship research institutions in an effort to generate more robust research and data to support evidence-based policymaking and more effective entrepreneurial support programming. In short, data and analysis on what works and what does not in helping new firm formation.
