National Enterprise Network is a unique membership body representing those working in the enterprise support sector across England.
National Enterprise Network believe their members are crucial to England’s economic growth. NEN members provide a wide array of support to new and established businesses, offering impartial and independent information, advice, training and other services including loan funding, managed workspace and incubation facilities.
Research shows that those who seek support in the setting up and running of their businesses are more likely to survive and thrive and there is no greater example of good quality, personalised and tailored support than that offered by NEN Members and Associates.
National Enterprise Network’s online directory has been specifically devised to help people looking for core support in starting up, to put them in touch with support organisations located nearby.
As a membership body, NEN’s role is to support their members work by:
- Representing their interests to government and others in the public and private sector, showcasing a unique national network of credible, quality assured enterprise support organisations
- Promoting membership successes and demonstrating their value to local communities and the wider economy
- Connecting people and projects inside and outside the Network, sharing valuable knowledge, skills and opportunities for success.
Who are NEN’s membership?
NEN membership is traditionally, but not exclusively, made up of not-for-profit enterprise support organisations providing independent and impartial advice, training and mentoring to new and emerging businesses. NEN represent a variety of enterprise support organisations; including enterprise agencies, Chambers of Commerce, local authorities and other specialist providers.
