We are actively seeking dialogue with potential sponsor organisations, and are looking to work flexibly with Corporate Responsibility teams to achieve mutual, shared aims. Please call our Chief Executive Richard Abbott on 020 7241 7060.We Need Your Support Because:
"Building Businesses Creates Social Welfare" (Julie Meyer, Enterprise 'Dragon')
Since 1984 we have been helping local people achieve greater independence, improve their own lives (and those of others) by developing entrepreneurial skills.
The people that we help to start, fund and grow businesses create tangible jobs and wealth, and develop one of the UK's most disadvantaged local communities.
Over the last 3 years we have intensively supported an average of 80 enterprise start-ups every year. Those start-ups have also created 100 new jobs annually.
Over the years, we have levered >£11m of finance into local small firms, which has helped them to create and safeguard over 1,000 jobs.
Each year we handle well over 5,000 enquiries about enterprise. Nearly 1,000 people register for our support and many of them attend our free training seminars and workshops. We teach them the language of enterprise. Even if they do not start up in business, they take away transferable skills and experience that increases the range of options open to them, and makes them more employable.
We are quality assured, efficient and deliver excellent value for money. However, the current economic climate means there is insufficient funding for some of our work, and funding is increasingly under threat. That's why we need your support.
Thanks for your interest in HBV Enterprise. We look forward to hearing from you.
