Free support for businesses in Kettering

A free business support scheme has been launched in Kettering.

The University of Northampton’s Business School launched Enterprise4Kettering, yesterday (Tuesday, June 18).

Funded by Kettering Council and delivered by the University of Northampton, Enterprise4Kettering provides support to both new business start-ups and more established businesses based in Kettering. Experienced coaches offer advice, workshops, structured support and guidance from a base at Chesham House Business Centre.

The launch event for the scheme provided a networking opportunity for Kettering’s numerous entrepreneurs, who were able to discuss their ideas, projects and problems with the coaching team in a relaxed environment. The event was also attended by representatives from Kettering Council, councillors and business leaders.

Kate Broadhurst, Head of Enterprise Development at Northampton Business School, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the Enterprise and Business Support contract from Kettering Council to deliver a range of free to access support to people thinking of starting a business or already running a business locally.

“Working with local business experts we are looking forward to helping to grow a thriving enterprise culture across Kettering.”
