Enterprise Clubs

Move over The Apprentice, an initiative to help unemployed people has opened its doors to potential local entrepreneurs in Neath Port Talbot.

With the help of Neath Port Talbot Council's Business Services team a new Enterprise Club was launched last week (7th July) aimed at supporting anyone who's keen to set up their own business.

Council Leader Ali Thomas said, "Anyone who is currently unemployed and has a head for business should visit Jobcentre Plus and get advice about attending an Enterprise Club session.

He added, "New businesses represent the future of our economy, so we need to make sure that unemployed people with a good idea get the support they need to move into self-employment.

New entrepreneurs and small business owners in Neath Port Talbot will be able to swap ideas and talk to guest speakers including people from successful local businesses."

Those that attended the launch at Sandfields Young Business Centre included representatives from the Welsh Governments Regional Centre Service, Business Connect, local financial organisations, and other marketing specialists.
