Enterprise Nation has announced a collaboration with BizSpace, the UK's largest provider of flexible workspaces, to help support its occupier SME business community.
Enterprise Nation will support and deliver events in selected BizSpace centres around the UK, to help firms develop the skills they need to grow their business and income.
Emma Long, commercial director at BizSpace, said: "We want to ensure that the small businesses we work with are provided with support in every aspect, whether it is hiring staff, sourcing products, attracting funding and winning new clients.
"This is why the collaboration with Enterprise Nation is so important. Our customers will get the support they need to help their business progress and grow.
"SMEs are resilient, achieving faster growth over the last seven years compared to the UK economy as a whole. We want to support them as much as we can, be part of their journey, and watch them continue to do some great things over the coming years."
Emma Jones, founder of Enterprise Nation, said: "We know from experience that entrepreneurs seek out a like-minded community and opportunities to collaborate together, with accessible advice around the fundamentals.
"But they often struggle to take time out of the day-to-day to work on developing the business. We're delighted to be able to help BizSpace deliver practical, accessible advice to its members."
The link-up is part of BizSpace's mission to support its friendly, collaborative business community within its national collection of workspaces.
As part of the partnership, BizSpace will provide access to Enterprise Nation membership for 12 months to its members nationwide, who can sign up via this link.
