About the IOEE

The Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs was founded in 2010 creating the first dedicated professional learning institute specialising in business enterprise and business support, a standing still enjoyed to this day within the UK.

The Institute’s programmes and qualifications are built on the extensive research that underpins the SFEDI® National Occupational Standards and the expertise of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs, the UK’s only professional Institute dedicated to enterprise.

With our programmes and qualifications having been designed to be flexible to meet the wide range of demand within enterprise learning, we recognise the needs of industry to develop enterprising and entrepreneurial individuals to support the sustainability and growth of business and the wider community.

Within this we also develop and publish best practice materials and resources to support the delivery of our qualifications to an extremely high standard ensuring that your customers gain all they require when either starting or progressing their enterprise journey.

We created the IOEE to recognise all those who invest in enterprise learning and development. Professional institutes exist for most occupations, why not entrepreneurs?
