Enterprise Nation has announced a partnership with leading energy provider Utilita to add another layer of support to its growing small business community.
The collaboration will see core Utilita business customers who sign up to Utilita from 2019 will have access to 12 months of free support, including network masterclasses, business building events, adviser networks and meet-ups, aimed at helping small firms grow and increase profits.
The link-up is part of Utilita's pledge to invest in smarter and better ways support its customers while offering a fair deal to its micro and small business consumers in challenging times.
Entrepreneurs taking advice build stronger businesses
Emma Jones, founder of Enterprise Nation, said: "One thing we know from experience is that entrepreneurs that take on board advice build stronger and more sustainable businesses for the long term. They thrive when they seek out a like-minded community and opportunities to collaborate together with accessible advice.
"This collaboration with Utilita will mean its customers can access free business support around the fundamentals and beyond during times of real challenge for them. It's reassuring to see firms like Utilita recognising these challenges and going the extra mile to make sure their customers get the help they need."
Bill Bullen, CEO of Utilita, said: "Small and micro businesses make up 96 per cent of the UK's business population, creating wealth, employment and playing a vital role in our local communities. It's why in 2016 when we launched Utilita Business Energy, we set out on a mission to help these hard-working people, firstly through a fairer energy deal and now we're excited to be taking the next step.
"We believe offering our commercial customers the kind of support that can take them to the next level is an important step, making sure they can not just survive, but thrive in uncertain times."
