Campaigns and impact
Making a difference to the communities we serve
Our campaigns, press activity and social impact sit in this area of the website. As a not-for-profit organisation with a strong social mission, we care deeply about making a positive contribution to the markets we serve. Our programmes develop skills which improve the lives of individuals and the prosperity of communities and we seek to have an impact beyond the products and services we offer #ABEway. We fund and share independent research which supports policy development in business and entrepreneurship education around the world.
Our reports & commitments
Our ES Pledge focuses on three impact pathways - our People, our Planet, and our Partners. The Pledge builds on the ABE way manifesto and underpins our commitment to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) so that we embrace best-practice in all our policies and operations. It also leverages the power of our network by working with our global partners to deliver real change.
‘The ABE Way’ is our commitment to support our learners and partners to help them embrace uncertainty and to turn risk into opportunity. It's also a collection of beliefs, aspirations and behaviours. The ABE Way is about giving back, making a difference and using business to build a better future for us all.
Educating Future Founders is the largest ever research-led international study into entrepreneurial education. The report highlights a compelling case for teaching entrepreneurship to all children from the age of eleven.
This campaign, based on an independent analysis of 10,500 business owners across 21 countries, argues for providing entrepreneurs with access to appropriate management training in order to significantly reduce business failure.
Quickly adapting assessments in response to COVID-19 resulted in ABE learners avoiding much of the disruption faced by students elsewhere. This paper shares lessons learned and outline recommendations to policymakers.
This report is from an international survey of learners which looks at the impact of COVID-19 on aspirations and expectations. The findings highlight an increased demand for entrepreneurial skills in the wake of the pandemic.
Our programmes make a difference to people in some of the world’s most disadvantaged regions. We develop skills in business and entrepreneurship that empower individuals, reduce gender inequality and tackle extreme poverty.
Young people in low GDP countries are often unable to access the type of education that will help them to develop sustainable enterprises that could lift them out of poverty. The ABE for Schools Global Impact Programme is designed to help level the deep divides in access to quality education, enabling more affluent schools across the developed world to ‘twin’ with low-income partner schools in the Global South, subsidising the implementation of the ABE Endorsed KidsMBA and/or KidsSDGs programmes.
