An entrepreneurial mindset empowers you to take action about the things you really care about. As individuals we can use the mindset to create benefits in our own lives. As employees, managers, leaders and business owners we can generate benefits for the organisations where we work and the people that they serve. The mindset also helps us to see our place in society and the contributions we can make, even to the really big issues like climate change.

The Network is organised into groups that reflect the expertise and specialist interests of our members, including the application of the entrepreneurial mindset in Education, Healthcare, Services and the Community.

A practical definition of the entrepreneurial mindset

Many people use the phrase “entrepreneurial mindset” but it is often used in a vague or ill-defined way. To solve this problem, the Entrepreneurial Mindset Network has created an easy to understand, common sense and practical definition of the entrepreneurial mindset based on 7 essential entrepreneurial behaviours.

A summary of the definition is available to read and download in 16 different languages, and a book with a step-by-step guide is available in print and electronic formats.

Sharing inspiring stories from around the world

We collect and share stories from our members and publish them online in a regular eZINE. The purpose is to showcase a diverse group of people, who are using the entrepreneurial mindset in a wide variety of contexts. These stories can help you to reflect on your own practice and how you can make use of the key lessons that are authors have shared.

eZINE Volume 6 Number 2 is now available, an archive of all the articles published since 2018, and advice about how to submit your own story to a future edition.
