About Us

Our mission is to represent, connect and promote enterprise agencies across the UK to key government stakeholders and policy makers, advocating the value of start-up and small business enterprise.

As the country’s leading representative of business support for micro, small and start-up businesses, the National Enterprise Network is an established community of dedicated enterprise support providers delivering impact on the ground at a community level across the whole of the UK.

We have supported the business support sector for more than 25 years, representing enterprise agencies offering independent and impartial advice, training and mentoring to new and emerging businesses. Over time our network has grown to include Chambers of Commerce, local authorities, other specialist enterprise providers, universities and corporate organisations across England.

We represent, unite and support all organisations who are passionate about inspiring and encouraging enterprise. 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.

Our Strategic Partners

Our strategic partners are government departments and other not for profit bodies whose work includes activity in or aligned to the enterprise support sector.

We hold valuable strategic relationships with a small number of partners within government and sector related organisations that operate within the enterprise and entrepreneurship environment. We provide consultation on enterprise support sector issues and opportunities and ultimately build stronger links and alliances for our network.
