We were founded in 2010 as Community Interest Company (CIC) Limited by Guarantee to support new enterprise within the County.
We are the local Enterprise Agency for the County and operate on a not-for-profit, social enterprise basis.
As a member of the National Enterprise Network (NEN)* we are mandated to provide independent and impartial advice as well as provide training, advice and guidance to new and emerging business enterprises.
We are a member of the Community Interest Companies Association. The CIC Association is the home of regulated social business.
We provide access to a wide range of services and information tailored to meet the needs of individuals and organisations at all stages of business start up. From the initial thoughts about going it alone to those who need additional support at the beginning of their journey.
