About Us

The EiA vision

Our vision is that every young person will fulfil their potential in education and leave education with the skills, knowledge and mind-set to make them employable and entrepreneurial.

EiA’s vision is based upon the passionate belief that academic, vocational and core skills, whilst critically important, are not enough to ensure that young people emerge into the working world with the best chance of maximising their potential. We believe that increasing the economic engagement of young people can be achieved by driving the 3 E’s: Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship.

Why choose Entrepreneurs in Action?

Our track record and experience

We have over 11 years’ experience in running enterprise based interactive programmes designed to motivate and inspire young people through business. In the education space we have an unparalleled track record of engaging local, national and international business to work with schools. We have worked with a range of Independent schools and we have worked with numerous State schools and various colleges and universities.

Supporting the Queen’s award for enterprise promotion

In 2006 Her Majesty The Queen, graciously conferred her award for Enterprise Promotion upon Derek Browne, the CEO of Entrepreneurs in Action.

In 2003 Derek Browne gave up a lucrative career in the City to launch Entrepreneurs in Action, an organisation aimed at teaching young people about the approach needed for entrepreneurial success.

His aim has been to develop a new generation of entrepreneurs who, irrespective of their background, can build a secure future through enterprise.
