Shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna will be focusing on the success of British entrepreneurs and what the future holds as he hosts the latest Next Generation event.

The event, which takes place in London on 27 January, will follow the journey of five leading business figures:

Paul Lindley - Founder of Ella's Kitchen
Sarah Wood - Co-Founder and COO of Unruly
Samir Desai - Founder and CEO of Funding Circle
Jamie Mitchell - Former Managing Director of Innocent Drinks and now Executive Chairman Tom Dixon.
Michelle Ovens - National Campaigns Director for Small Business Saturday.

This Next Generation event, the last before the general election, will explore how entrepreneurs are creating new markets and reshaping the way we do things, and in tunr, what it is that we need to do to build and environment and platforms to help increase the number of high growth businesses at the same time as bringing down the barriers so more people from all backgrounds and regions can start-out on their 'British Dream'.

Mr Umunna will also use the event to outline some of the ways a Labour government would be supporting entrepreneurs and fostering a strong business environment.
