Much of the media narrative on immigration implies that those coming to the United Kingdom are ‘taking our jobs’ – but in fact, many of them are far more likely to be creating jobs.

In partnership with mi-HUB, a social enterprise building the first co-working space exclusively for migrant entrepreneurs, this Institute of Directors report intends to remind policymakers and the media that those that have shown the ‘get up and go’ to come to the UK are uniquely entrepreneurial.

Allowing them to build businesses here, and giving them the support they need, is a win-win for the UK economy.
