National Enterprise Network calls on Minister not to ignore start-ups and small businesses

National Enterprise Network (NEN), representing the country’s enterprise agencies and enterprise support organisations, across the country has written to the Secretary of State for Business reminding him of the importance of providing regional advice and support for start-ups and all the small businesses that do not fall into the definition of ‘growth businesses’

National Enterprise Network reminds the Chancellor: “In your drive to woo the voters remember that Small Businesses employ more than half of them.”

National Enterprise Network (NEN), representing the agencies that support many of the country’s small and start up businesses, is looking to the Chancellor to entice small business owners in his September 4 Autumn Statement, alongside the other budget relaxations he has flagged, with the prospect of a general election on the horizon.

National Enterprise Network welcomes Chancellor’s support for high street enterprise

National Enterprise Network, representing many of the country’s enterprise agencies, has welcomed the confirmation from the Chancellor that funding for small businesses, which has previously been available through European Funding, will continue to be made available through the British Business Bank on the exit of the UK from the EU. Furthermore, the extension of the Start Up Loan funding to 2021 will mean that loans to start up businesses will continue to be made available through some enterprise agencies.
