The NACFB is delighted to be partnering with Enterprise Nation, supported by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), to offer support and advice to small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) through the next phase of recovery. Enterprise Nation operates at the heart of the small business community, with over a decade of experience in supporting people to start and grow their own business through providing access to online advice, lively events, and national training campaigns.
Enterprise Nation & NACFB
As part of this effort, Enterprise Nation is offering free access to their platform for SMEs impacted by Coronavirus and to business advisers volunteering their time to give advice. Through the platform SMEs will be able to contact advisers to request a free one-hour call to ask questions and discuss actions they might take for their business.
Where the NACFB are participating in this effort, we are offering free access to the Enterprise Nation platform to SMEs impacted by COVID-19 and to business advisers volunteering their time to give advice. Through the platform, SMEs will be able to contact our registered Members to request a free one-hour call to ask questions and discuss actions they might take for their business.
How much time do I have to commit?
To take part, Enterprise Nation are asking for each registered Member (which can be a firm or individual) to dedicate a minimum of one hour per month over the course of the initiative to businesses they are matched with. Small businesses can arrange calls with our Members who are participating in the programme through Enterprise Nation’s platform. These calls can last up to an hour.
What happens after the call?
There is no obligation to do anything after the call but if the business owner needs ongoing advice, you are free to continue the relationship on your own terms. Notwithstanding the possibility that longer-term business relationships may develop, the focus is on offering helpful advice during the free hour to help businesses affected by Coronavirus (Covid-19) disruption.
