Emma Jones MBE
Emma launched her first business, Techlocate, in 2000 and successfully sold it 15 months later. The experience of starting, growing and selling a business from home gave Emma the idea for Enterprise Nation which launched in 2006 as a home business website. The company has since expanded to a community of over 75,000 people. In March 2011 she was one of 8 co-founders to launch StartUp Britain, the national campaign to encourage more people to start a business and support existing business growth. Emma has just returned from China where she was part of the Prime Minister’s trade mission.
