Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

AL­MOST 30 new busi­nesses have been given free help by a new ini­tia­tive to boost the lo­cal econ­omy.

En­ter­pris­ing Mac­cles­field, which was launched last Novem­ber, aims to be a one-stop­shop for free ad­vice and sup­port to any­one want­ing to set up their own so­cial or com­mer­cial en­ter­prise.

It is run by a Make it Mac­cles­field, a Com­mu­nity In­ter­est Com­pany. So far 28 en­ter­prises so far have been given free ad­vice.

Chair­man Tim Sher­cliff said: “In the short pe­riod of time that we have been setup we have seen strong de­mand for en­ter­prise sup­port in the area.

“We have en­gaged with some ex­cit­ing and in­no­va­tive busi­nesses and we can’t wait to sup­port more.”

The aim is to sim­plify the of­ten con­fus­ing world of busi­ness by of­fer­ing would-be en­trepreneurs free coach­ing from lead­ing busi­ness pro­fes­sion­als.

It also links up with a group of ex­pert ad­vi­sors in the fields of fi­nance, le­gal, IT, HR, sales and mar­ket­ing, bank­ing, brand­ing, web­site and so­cial me­dia, and sign­post to pots of fund­ing to help get their ven­ture off the ground.
