How Enterprise Nation can help your small business

Members of Enterprise Nation, the small business support and growth group, tell how Enterprise Nation has helped them develop their business.

Providing inspiration

Very early on I found out about EN through the Enterprise Nation Fashion Exchange where I listened to some inspirational speakers and found lots of new ways to do things. It was an incredibly formative moment for Tahouts. I try to use them as much as possible and more and more I’m attending evening events on specific areas I want to learn more about.

Direct access to business knowledge

I wouldn’t be anywhere without Enterprise Nation, they’ve had a huge impact on my business, from their weekly seminars to the amazing Festival of Female Entrepreneurs, I don’t believe my business would be where it is today without it. When you first start your own business it can be very hard working by yourself, which is why the weekly webinars were so critical to me. They also gave me access to knowledge I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford.

Go Global missions for international success

Enterprise Nation has been key to my success. They hold regular workshops which have helped and I’ve also been on two of the Go Global missions which have expanded my horizons and brought in some excellent new international contacts I would otherwise not have had.

Brand awareness and events

They’ve been particularly useful to me, helping me to get brand awareness, advice on how to put on great events and I also love networking with other small business owners – it’s great to be able to share some war wounds and know that you’re not the only person that’s going through it all.

High calibre networking

Enterprise Nation’s expert workshops and online masterclasses have helped our business significantly. We’ve got a lot of great ideas from them, which we put in practise and made a difference in the way we work. Secondly with their excellent networking events. We’ve only attended a couple so far but we’ve met some very high calibre people and from which some collaborations are currently on the cards.

Special offers

Organisations like Enterprise Nation are so great. All the resources you need are in one place, they have links in with the Government and some great people for support. There are loads of people in the same position you can share opportunities with and experienced people you can turn to for advice. We’ve recently took out our insurance with Simply Business as we didn’t realise EN members get a 15% discount. You get more than your money back from your membership with all the deals and saving that are available.

Building skills

Enterprise Nation have been invaluable for me. They’ve helped me to build skills and knowledge that I needed to get started. They’ve also helped me network with great people and given the business exposure through featuring on their podcasts, social media and blog. I especially love attending their events and tuning into their lunchtime webinars.
