The Genesis Initiative was formed to improve the quality of the debate on SMEs and create economic reform, driven by SMEs and supported by Parliamentarians.
The Senate meets at least three times during each Parliamentary session, normally in March, June and October. It involves a highly professional and qualified representative of Entrepreneurs, SME Academia, Parliaments and Assemblies and SME Organisations within the UK (some 117 representing some1 million members).
This combination of entrepreneurial zeal, concentrated research and commitment from experts working on behalf of SMEs is linked with All-Party Support across the House of Lords and Commons.
Their joint efforts contribute to the continued growth of the SME sector within the United Kingdom.
This experience and knowledge is shared with international partners who wish to work with or emulate this model.
Small business is the backbone of the British economy and when it does well the whole country does well. The role of Genesis is to act as an umbrella organisation, working on your behalf to optimise potential growth in the SME sector by fostering a “can do” culture. We aim to participate fully in achieving economic and structural reforms that will enable business to flourish.
