THE FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) launched its Yorkshire Enterprise Club in Hull on Friday 11th May 2012.
Neville Martin, the FSB’s Regional Development Manager, believes that small businesses and the ‘enterprise community’ are key factors that will contribute to the future economic success of the UK. The Yorkshire Enterprise Club has been set up to support those setting-up in business and putting them in touch with over 50 public and private sector support agencies that can help.
“We aim to increase the number of new business start-ups by 50% and improve the survival rates of those setting up. We want to ‘raise the bar’ in the provision of support and training, and signpost new businesses to the brilliant services that exist to support them. Through the Yorkshire Enterprise Club we hope to set up a ‘Start-up community’ as an identifiable body.”
The new Yorkshire Enterprise Club will offer a range of free services to those starting out in business. This includes free banking, low-cost insurance, networking and promotional opportunities, free e-newsletters and a range of ‘How to…’ guides. The new club is free to join.
