About Us

National Enterprise Network is a unique membership body representing those working in the enterprise support sector across England.

We believe our members are crucial to England’s economic growth. Our role is to support their work by representing their interests, promoting the results they achieve and connecting them with opportunities for even greater success.

Alex Till

NEN Chairman - Chief Executive, MENTA
Alex Till is focussed on driving forward the growth of new, emerging and existing businesses in Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. He joined MENTA as CEO in 2011, having previously worked at Suffolk County Council in senior roles connected with the economic development of Suffolk, as well as posts at Business Link Suffolk, Suffolk Acre and the Suffolk Development Agency. Through his role at MENTA, Alex helps raise the profile of the significant work MENTA provides supporting people in skills, enterprise and employability.

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.
