The E in LEP is for ENTERPRISE

Not Economic.

Not Entrepreneurial.


If LEPs really focused on encouraging enterprise rather than economic growth how would things change?

If LEPs looked at how they create a culture where enterprise (the ability to act boldly in pursuit of progress) was the norm rather than the exception, a mass participation sport, something that was seen as cool and for everyone, not just those smart ‘entrepreneurial types in suits’ what sorts of things would they be doing?

How would our communities change?

What would happen to our economy?


  1. To expect a LEP to nurture grassroots enterprise is like expecting a university to nurture student rebellion. Both create an environment in which the other can flourish but neither has control of what results.
