Enterprise Issue 22

A thought leadership publication for entrepreneurs and growth companies

In this issue of Enterprise, we celebrate female founders!

We showcase six stories as told by the women behind the businesses across a broad range of sectors. We hope you enjoy reading the stories of Kanya King, founder of the MOBO awards, and our other brilliant entrepreneurs.

We also feature a snapshot from this year’s Annual ScaleUp Review and our own Enterprise Index, which both support the view that entrepreneurs continue to be optimistic, even against a backdrop of political uncertainty.
