Our membership is traditionally, but not exclusively, made up of not-for-profit enterprise support organisations providing independent and impartial advice, training and mentoring to new and emerging businesses. We represent a variety of enterprise support organisations; including enterprise agencies, Chambers of Commerce, local authorities and other specialist providers.

We support the work of our members through practical benefits and new business opportunities; we promote the results they achieve to influencers and policy makers; and we connect them with people and projects that can deliver even greater success.

Research shows that those who seek support in the setting up and running of their businesses are more likely to survive and thrive and there is no greater example of good quality, personalised and tailored support than that offered by our Members and Associates.
