A short documentary film showcasing an afternoon of discussion on Inclusive Entrepreneurship at MediaCityUK in Manchester on Thursday 14th November 2019.
Inclusive means entrepreneurship is open and easily accessible to all. It levels the playing field and allows entrepreneurs to seek, create and participate in opportunities, especially those facing barriers to the workplace.
As an organisation, they have a commitment towards innovation within inclusive communities, and together we are creating the 2030 Agenda Paradigm Shift tasked of us in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – where communities start to see people who face barriers, not as burdens, but as contributing citizens who bring a new and exciting presence to the table. The resultant contribution to the growth of the economy from such enterprise is what we term Inclusive Economic Growth.
Over the last few years they have been working hard at bringing this task to fruition – through the Inclusive Entrepreneur Programme we run as an organisation, and the various Calls to Action, debates and events they have held.
This event is one in a series of events, and will be followed by an Expo and Concert 26 February 2020 at St George’s Hall, Liverpool.
This evidence will feed into a White Paper and other policy changing documents that support our Call to Action in respect of business support requirements going forward.
