Corporate Patrons

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.
