New alliance to help Cambridgeshire’s businesses

Business | Press | News

A new alliance between two of Cambridgeshire’s premier business support organisations will bring many benefits to the county’s businesses.

The Cambridgeshire Business Group is the outcome of new arrangements between Cambridgeshire Business - the parent company of Business Link for Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire Business Services and Cambridgeshire Enterprise Services - and the Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

While Cambridgeshire Business and the Chamber of Commerce will remain separate legal entities, they will increasingly act together as the ‘Cambridgeshire Business Group’, for the benefit of their clients and for the economy of the county as a whole.

The close working relationship will be cemented by the presence on the Board of Cambridgeshire Business of two representatives of the Chamber, with a similar arrangement operating on the Chamber's Board.

Stephen Hampson, group chief executive of Cambridgeshire Business commented: "Working together with the Chamber will have many advantages for our customers.

"We will be able to provide an enlarged and seamless service for the county’s enterprises, whilst avoiding duplication. With this greater clarity, customers will find it easier to access the services they need. By sharing some overheads we will be able to free up resources for our customers.

"Whilst formation of the Cambridgeshire Business Group will be very beneficial for our customers, existing partners will not be forgotten. For example, we will continue to work with St John's Innovation Centre, Cambridge University Enterprise, the Further Education Colleges, Enterprise Fenland, many private sector providers and other membership organisations including Enterprise Link and Peterborough Business Club, making their expertise available to our customers.

John Bridge, chief executive of the Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry was enthusiastic about the alliance: "The alliance will not only provide the Chamber with access to additional resources, but will also allow us to focus on our role of supporting our members, including a discount on some Business Link services.

"We will continue to remain fully independent, owned by our members, but will now have an increased say in the provision of the services that are available to them and will be able to commission special services if a particular need arises."
