A new charter aiming to support entrepreneurs of all backgrounds to start or grow their business is being launched by the University of Nottingham. The charter, aiming to minimise barriers to entrepreneurship for underserved and under-represented groups through creation of a more inclusive ecosystem, was launched nationally today, at the Shard in London, by the University of Nottingham.
Professor Mark Hart, Deputy-Director of the Enterprise Research Centre, a signatory and co-sponsor of today’s national launch event, in conjunction with the University of Nottingham said, “It is well-known that entrepreneurship is vital for innovation, job creation, and economic growth which are national priorities. Entrepreneurial activity has been a central focus for unlocking global economic recovery for some time. Despite this, significant disparities persist in relation to access to finance, business growth and returns.”
