Enterprising Wellingborough is the council’s initiative to provide a link between the borough’s businesses, and business support organisations and opportunities.

We provide signposting to point you in the right direction for what kind of support you are looking for.

To help this initiative grow we want to provide a tool for our local economy, so we need your feedback:

- Tell us about your business, plans, ambitions and goals
- Tell us about your experiences using our tools and others
- Tell us about support partners you have used or would recommend
- Tell us what kind of information you want from this signposting tool

Help us grow to help you grow.
