Managing Director Kathryn Riley was invited to the Palace of Westminster for an intimate drinks reception launching this years’ Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The event was hosted by Chancellor of the Exchequer Phillip Hammond and Minister for Small Business Kelly Tolhust. In attendance were other fast growth entrepreneurs from UK businesses that have outperformed the national average by 78%.
