South West Business Centres, who manage the Somerset Enterprise Centres network, are focused on supporting local businesses whether they are looking to start up, develop or grow. Somerset Enterprise Centre tenants can utilise many aspects of this service free of charge.
We are an Associate Member of the National Enterprise Network, a membership body for those committed to the support and development of enterprise. Members are not-for-profit organisations which provide independent and impartial advice, training and mentoring to new and emerging businesses.
We visit all the Centres in turn during the month and conduct drop-in sessions for 1-2-1 advice and support from SFEDI accredited advisors with tenants to discuss all aspects of their growth plans.
The business journey can be challenging and in many cases there will be a need to broker clients on to more specific help eg high growth businesses to services provided by the Business Growth Service which includes Growth Accelerator, Manufacturing Advisory Services and for export, UK Trade and Investment.
