George Osborne and David Cameron have, over the past months, repeatedly stressed the importance of entrepreneurs in the continued economic recovery.

World Entrepreneurship Day aims to remind the world that it is entrepreneurs who have consistently led sluggish economies back to prosperity and growth through innovation and job creation.
