ISBE is committed to ensuring that our members’ feedback is included in policy discussions about small business and entrepreneurship. Over the years, we have collated our members’ responses to calls for information by Government, and ISBE trustees and members are regularly asked to participate in high-level discussions about government policy relating to ISBE’s remit.
Thank you to members who provided feedback to our recent call about KEF metrics; this has now been submitted to HEFCE for discussion. Our Entrepreneurial Finance SIG is providing a response to the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Entrepreneurship‘s current call for evidence about tax reform, and Dr Kelly Smith, ISBE’s Vice President for Education and Practitioner Learning, is collating a response for Enterprise Education. If you would like to contribute to Kelly’s reply, please contact her via firstname.lastname@example.org by the 12th of February.
We are also pleased to be working with the Entrepreneurs’ Network this year to make the policy implications of papers presented at ISBE 2018 available to the APPG for Entrepreneurship. Authors are asked to include implications for policy and for practice in their abstracts for this year’s conference in Birmingham.
