A boost for enterprise

Business | Press | News

Business Link for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Enterprise Programme (PEP) are working together on an initiative to further boost the strong enterprise culture in and around Peterborough.

Focussing on new start ups as well as existing small businesses, the initiative provides:-

  • A free half day seminar for new start ups designed to help them find their way through the maze of tasks they need to do when setting up a business

  • A six day training programme covering everything from selling and marketing to legal and finance topics

  • A free voucher scheme enabling existing small businesses to access any Business Link branded service using the vouchers as payment.

The initiative aims to recruit support from other agencies such as Colleges, The Inland Revenue, Chamber of Commerce and Local authorities as well as Accountants, Banks and Solicitors. In this way small businesses can get access to a wide range of professional advice from the outset with continued support from Peterborough Enterprise Programme as they grow and prosper.

A local businessman, Peter Greenwell, has been recruited to co-ordinate the new Enterprise Network. Peter previously managed the adviser team at Business Link Greater Peterborough and has extensive business experience prior to working with Business Link. "This is an exciting idea which has the potential to give start up and existing small businesses a solid foundation to grow their business from" said Peter. "Business Link for Cambridgeshire and PEP are very much there to help and support local businesses and this initiative will bring together a co-ordinated range of services to do just that!"

Any organisation willing to help with the initiative can contact Peter at Business Link on 0845 609 7979 or anyone thinking of starting in business or any existing small business can contact Peterborough Enterprise Programme, details below.
