What separates super successful entrepreneurs from the rest of us? How do they really see the world? And how does their background differ? The Financial and Professional Services team joined forces up with HSBC Private Banking and research group, Scorpio Partnership, to find out. Surveying 4000+ entrepreneurs, each with an individual wealth of $250,000, we launched a world leading report on entrepreneurship. Breaking down underlying motivations, goals, lifestyle, upbringing and other background factors of our sample, we mapped trends happening across global entrepreneurship today.

Exploring unique data points from the large-scale findings, such as ‘millennials running larger businesses than the over 50s’ and ‘how entrepreneurs break down their day’, tailored angles were crafted for different media around the globe. Come launch day, coverage in The Financial Times appeared, with more than 60 publications around the world following including Business Insider, and City A.M. The coverage continues, and the report has received more than 5000 downloads to date. Truly capturing of the Essence of Enterprise.
