Forty established and highly successful business founders will share their knowledge at these events with those who have recently set up, or plan to grow their own companies.
The Prime Minister David Cameron said: "The passion and self-starting spirit of Britain’s entrepreneurs are a driving force of our economic success. It’s great to see such influential people who have built businesses from the ground up passing on their experience and expertise. This will inspire the next generation, who I am sure will value the support, and I am sure that Entrepreneurs Exchange will be a great success."
Attendees at No10 Downing Street included Anya Hindmarch, the designer and founder of her own fashion label; John Vincent, co-founder of Leon restaurants; Shaun Pulfrey, founder and inventor of Tangle Teezer; and Holly Tucker, co-founder of Not On The High Street.
Anya Hindmarch said: "There is nothing more exciting than starting and growing your own business. Along the way however, I have found it essential to listen to other entrepreneurs’ journeys, to learn from their experience. I would encourage anyone who is an entrepreneur to attend these talks. It will be time well spent and you may look back and think ‘if I hadn’t have heard that, I wouldn’t be where I am today’."
