Enterprise Spring 2017

A thought leadership publication for entrepreneurs, growth companies and their advisers.

In the wake of the triggering of Article 50, there are changes on the horizon for all sectors of the UK and global economy.

Sitting in the eye of the storm, waiting for the negotiations to unfold, there is for some an element of ‘business as usual’ in the market today. However, as this issue of Enterprise shows, no ambitious business can sit and wait for opportunities, or risks, to come to them.

There are no sacred cows and although uncertainty undoubtedly lies ahead, opportunity does too. However, nothing happens by accident.
‘Luck is when preparedness meets opportunity’. Earl Nightingale
