• Are we becoming a nation of entrepreneurs?
    We asked nearly 350 business owners across the UK what being an entrepreneur means to them. The answers may surprise you… 

    Fewer than half of small business owners identify as entrepreneurs – and it’s even less likely if you’re female or over 50.
