The Prime Minister’s advisor on enterprise, Lord Young, visited Lancaster University Management School to join more than 100 guests to help celebrate 15 years of LUMS’ work with thousands of small businesses.

Lord Young, who met LUMS students and entrepreneurs in residence before addressing guests at the celebratory dinner, said: “There has never been a more attractive time to start a business in the UK but, if we are to keep fleet of foot in the world ahead, then the only way to achieve that is to encourage an entrepreneurial culture in this country and to start more small firms in an economic shift – with this management school helping lead the way.”

Since 1999, Lancaster University Management School has worked with more than 3,000 small and medium-sized companies – many of which are located in the North West.
