After a sturdy spring clean, the Enterprise Nation platform is set for a new look. Over the past three years, we have worked to connect small businesses to support - and our aim is to keep improving your experience across the platform.
In June, a new journey will take you to relevant support - and connect advisers with businesses who want advice.
In the upgraded Enterprise Nation, which will be centred on a new-look Marketplace, you will be able to:
Rapidly access content and advisers
Enterprise Nation is being built on the latest technologies, which allows us to return results faster to members and advisers. Posts and profiles will be returned to you in seconds, allowing a seamless journey to connect you to the support you need via a new-look Marketplace.
Use your personal dashboard as a launchpad
Whether you are a member or an adviser, you'll see changes to your dashboard with updates sent to you direct so you can search, connect and engage with other members of the community.
This personalised dashboard will be your daily check-in point to see what support is available and to build a network across the UK.
Search using filters
Over the past 12 months, over 35,000 searches have taken place on the platform, providing Enterprise Nation with insights on what you're looking for when it comes to business support.
We are applying upgraded search technology to provide you with a better matching experience. You will be able to search by types of support (e.g. marketing) or by location (e.g. Leicester). Search for 'marketing in Leicester' and you will see related events, experts, training, content and offers.
Don't know what you're looking for? The Business Health Check will help with that.
Build a brand and a business
For advisers with a subscription to Enterprise Nation, it'll be easier for you to upload content and track discovery calls and service requests. In addition, the new-look platform will feature:
A new seamless navigation to update your profile and complete the sections that will get you noticed
Built-in data to help you stay on top of the current demands for business support on Enterprise Nation
Nudges to show you where you can boost your visibility through your profile or by uploading content and events
Join the Getting started on Enterprise Nation event for advisers on 16 June to discover how to find clients, boost yourself in search and build your brand.
Advisers on Enterprise Nation benefit from building profile amongst an active community of over 100,000 small businesses, many of whom are seeking support.

Thanks to a top tech team - led by CTO Billy Johal - for putting in the hours to bring the next version of Enterprise Nation to life. I hope you will like the result.
