The Enterprise Forum is an independent, not-for-profit organisation founded in 1997 to facilitate discussions on policy between the business community and the Conservative Party. In 2010 The Enterprise Forum began engagement with the Liberal Democrats following the formation of the Coalition Government.
We provide a two-way channel of communication, an independent middle ground where business can meet, debate policy and build relationships with key policy makers in the Coalition Government, and provide a forum for networking with other industry professionals.
Members include commercial organisations (including FTSE 100 companies and SMEs), trade associations and charities.
Our programme is determined by the policy interests of the member organisations. The majority of meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule.
The Enterprise Forum is managed by an unpaid board of senior directors drawn from business and industry. The organisation does not take a position on policy, and does not donate to or receive donations from any political party.
