Hackney Enterprise Network – Working for your success

The new place to do business in Hackney, that’s already attracted 350 new recruits since its launch in 2010.

For less than £1 a week, we’re giving Hackney based firms like yours four key things to help them make their business better.

Firstly, we’re The Place to Meet, offering regular networking events (either general, or sometimes with specialist themes) to help you get to know other local firms in the area, promote what you do and make new contacts that could lead to new business.  Details of our forthcoming events are available online here.

We’re also The Place To Access a range of services designed to help small firms grow.  These include loans and finance-raising support, small grants, advice and training workshops; more here. You may also value the free business review that’s currently on offer to new members of the network.  Read more online here.

Bringing new market opportunities to our local firms, we’re The Place to Learn how to do business with the public and private sectors, including Hackney Council, City of London firms, and others.  We’re already helping local enterprises to understand supply chains and new markets, how they work and how to break into them.

We’re also The Place to Grow.  Growth can mean different things to different enterprises, so for you it could mean some of the things we’ve already mentioned above.  It might be about getting some strategic advice from one of our advisers, or becoming more efficient and profitable.  What matters is that we’re the affordable local network that’s here to help you do it.

The positive feedback we’re receiving from our members says it all; they really value our service and are glad they’ve joined.  If you’d like to read some of this feedback for yourself, come in and see us; we’re conveniently located on Dalston Lane, just 200m from the new Dalston Junction Station.
