Support for women wanting to launch - or grow - a business in Swindon and Wiltshire

"Women network so well together because they have a natural desire to build rapport quickly with people. When you add to that their programmed nurturing instincts, then referring business becomes powerful, potent and second nature!"  

The Enterprise Network is keen to support women-led enterprises, right from the first 'light-bulb' idea. Check out our FREE events for military spouses and partners in Wiltshire who might be thinking of launching a business, or going self employed, called Be Your Own Boss: Why Not? from April to September 2015.

There is also free, impartial and independent support and advice from the Wiltshire Business Support Service, ready and waiting to help you.

A series of free business networking and information events offering businesswomen a chance to hear from inspirational local women entrepreneurs, has been organised through TEN, specifically for women looking to launch a business, or grow an existing enterprise.


TEN's offices, hot desks, meeting/training rooms and networking space

TEN's four new Enterprise Centres across Wiltshire at Ludgershall, Royal Wootton Bassett, Salisbury and Trowbridge, offer welcoming, affordable offices with from one to five desks costing just £50/desk/week, flexible co-working space, meeting and training rooms, virtual office facilities and fantastic networking opportunities.


Military wives and partners could hold the key to their family's future financial security 

TEN recognises the huge entrepreneurial potential among military wives and partners in a county which is already regarded as home by many soldiers and their families. As Army basing plans take effect, several thousand more may soon choose to make the county their permanent residence.

A series of FREE 'Be Your Own Boss' coffee morning-style events tailored for military spouses and partners, to encourage them to think about launching a business, or going self employed, is running across Wiltshire from April to September 2015. Find out more and read the stories of military spouses who are already running successful businesses, on our Civvy Street page.

Whether leaving the service or not, it's recognised that military wives and partners could hold the key to future financial security for their families by setting up and running their own businesses.

The Enterprise Network (TEN), led by Wiltshire Council, is using EU and Government funds to offer free, impartial, business start-up support and advice and grants as well as opening Enterprise Centres offering affordable offices (just £50 per desk/week, all inclusive), co-working desks, meeting and training rooms and 'virtual office' services in and around the Salisbury Plain 'super-garrison' area.

New Website for Work in Wiltshire

New Website for Work in Wiltshire

The new Work Wiltshire website - launched by Wiltshire Council this July - has vital employment and skills information all in one place. Along with young people, it also advises employers, those who are vulnerable, have complex needs or disabilities and people who require financial support.

The website is a result of engagement with partners including local schools, Carer Support Wiltshire and Community First to ensure the website provides the most up to date and relevant information for users.

Cabinet member for children, education and skills Laura Mayes said: "I would encourage all young people to visit the website. It's an effective tool full of great information at what can be a confusing time for some. There is something for everyone and it's so accessible as it's all in one place."
