The Enterprise4Good team have over 25 years of business start-up and scale-up based on their own real-life experiences as entrepreneurs.
It is likely that we've been there, seen it, done it, bought the tee shirt & lost the tee shirt and our role is to help you learn from our successes ....and our failures!
If we can't help directly, we're certain we know expert professionals who can and our team happily works with industry specialists across all sectors who we'll happily all upon them to help you to if needs be.
Despite all that, we need to make this programme relevant. We don't just take books off the shelf and re-quote, re-teach and re-print; we'll create a Local Experts Panel and work with you, on a local level to find out what you tell us you NEED rather than us deliver what we think you WANT...demand driven, not supply led!
We're totally committed to pushing all our efforts and funding into delivering front-line support for entrepreneurs and their businesses.
Our Founders are well established entrepreneurs in their own right and as accredited business start-up and scale-up professionals, have worked with thousands of owners and directors of small businesses. Working in partnership with local authorities, central and regional government departments and private and community businesses we deliver measurable social and economic impact....with you at the heart of everything we do.
Every day we read about stress at work, it "being lonely at the top" and 20 hour working days. Our mandatory "Focus Me Moments" seminar programme embeds planning & coping tactics into enterprise growth strategies that prevent and deal with these....key factors for holding back business scale-up.
