Enterprise Nation starts the year in style with StartUp 2016

O2 Business kicked off this year in an exciting fashion by announcing its partnership with Enterprise Nation.

The partnership will see an initial 20,000 O2 Business customers receive full Enterprise Nation membership which includes access to a nationwide programme of workshops, events, networking and online support as well as to the firm’s 13,000-strong marketplace of small business advisers.

O2 Business support will extend to Enterprise Nation TV; a growing library of vox pop clips delivered by experts and entrepreneurs on the topics that matter most to small business, including how to embrace the digital opportunity in today’s economy.

In light of this partnership, this month saw O2 business sponsor and attend StartUp 2016, Enterprise Nation’s first event of the year and it was the place to be if you’re thinking of starting a business in 2016.

So I’m delighted that we’re partnering with Enterprise Nation. We see first-hand how the right advice and technology can have a positive impact on small businesses across the country. I’m looking forward to what we’ll achieve together.”
