Business Enterprise Support Limited

The Start up Hub

We are Business Enterprise Support Limited (BES), an enterprise agency which has delivered Enterprise Support programmes for the Department of Work and Pensions and local authorities. We also now manage Silverdale Library.

The project we have received funding for is The Start up Hub, which responds to the fact that North Staffordshire statistics show below average levels of entrepreneurial skills, expectations and enterprise activity. Our project will provide easy access to relevant information from an information hub, business planning workshops, a peer-to-peer support network and public product display space.

We are delighted that we can now start up this hub, complete with relevant and up-to-date information and IT equipment and can also employ an enterprise coach to guide clients through setting up their business.

In total, we’ll be able to engage with 50 new clients, who are interested in exploring opportunities for self-employment, through The Start-up Hub.
