Ahead of the Labour Party conference starting in Brighton today new leader Jeremy Corbyn met with entrepreneurs at the city’s Entrepreneurial Spark Hatchery.
Entrepreneurial Spark CEO Jim Duffy said: “We’re delighted to have Jeremy Corbyn visit our Brighton Hatchery in one of his first engagements as Labour leader. It was great to be able to show him how Entrepreneurial Spark operates and demonstrate the profound impact it is having across our other UK Hatcheries.
“Our vision is about inspiring positive social change through the action of entrepreneuring. Our Hatchery spaces gives opportunity to all – anyone has the potential to be an entrepreneur. By providing them with support, and through our partnerships with NatWest, RBS and KPMG, Entrepreneurial Spark is helping make that a reality – it’s incredible to see the UK wide entrepreneurial revolution that’s happening.”
Entrepreneurial Spark is a social enterprise that started in 2011 to support entrepreneurs via its free startup accelerator.
The organisation will be expanding into London, Newcastle, Cardiff and Milton Keynes over the next 18 months, with 13 locations live by 2017.
