LDBEN is a network of senior business people and entrepreneurs from across the UK. We help the Lib Dems re-establish the centre ground of politics in this country. We provide the Lib Dems with expert advice on business and economic policy. We make the case for the Party to the business community, as the only pro-business, anti-Brexit party in Britain today.
Entrepreneurial and business culture is innovative, meritocratic, disruptive, global and committed to progress. These are values that the UK needs to thrive in the 21st century and that the Lib Dems promote.
The Lib Dems were responsible for introducing over two million apprenticeships and reducing business regulation during coalition, and foresaw the banking crisis. Amid the pandemic, while the Conservative government focussed on big industry, our policy arm made sure that small businesses and the self-employed were not overlooked.
The ‘LDBEN’ community supports the Party to speak with authority on reskilling the workforce and managing the economy in face of the pandemic, Brexit, technological advances, and climate change.
