Biggest challenge

Encouraging businesses to make the most of local support

What is Reigate & Banstead Borough Council?


Reigate Council is based in Surrey, England and has recently signed up to work with Enterprise Nation as a partner.

The Council’s diverse local economy includes business ranging from small start-ups to large employers.

What was the previous approach to business support?

The Council ran a range of support programmes to help local businesses start, develop and grow. Now they are keen to expand and enhance this support through the new partnership with Enterprise Nation, giving local businesses access to the wide range of practical and engaging tools that Enterprise Nation offers.

The Council is very keen to encourage local businesses to make the most of the new support available.

The most successful businesses are pro-actively learning about all aspects of running a  business, from writing that first business plan to accounting and marketing. This ongoing learning helps a business grow and thrive, and we hope our local businesses, no matter their size, will take advantage of the fantastic range of support this partnership will offer.”

Simon Bland, economic prosperity programme manager, Reigate & Banstead Borough Council
