The Corporate Patron programme was introduced to encourage the giving of both financial and in-kind support to the Foundation’s key aims; to equip people with the skills needed by employers, to encourage more individuals to consider starting their own business, whatever their age, and to create new educational opportunities through an enterprise curriculum.
A donation to the Foundation helps to ensure that this new and innovative form of creating entrepreneurial talent is available across a wide range of educational institutions throughout the UK.
The Corporate Patron programme provides a vital support structure to equip future generations with the skills and mindset to start a business or get a job, thereby supporting the future of the British economy.
Our current Corporate Patrons:

The Clubhouse is London’s leading business club, meetings and event space, with two locations in the heart of London. The Clubhouse provides the smarter alternative to a London office for over 250 businesses.
The Clubhouse was founded in 2012 by Adam Blaskey, who was frustrated with meeting important clients in uninspiring, unproductive places around London. This ignited the idea to create a better way to do business and to fill the gap between a serviced office and meeting in hotel lobbies or coffee shops.
