Welcome > Economic Development

Cavendish Enterprise has successfully developed and delivered business support programmes across England through it’s consortium partners, strategically placed to cover each region within the country. Each of the partners has over 30 years experience in providing extensive invaluable support and advice to start-up and growing businesses.

Cavendish Enterprise successfully partnered with Barclays Bank to produce a new and imaginative, targeted national ‘new business investment readiness’ programme designed by specialists and delivered by enterprise agencies.

The ‘Ready for Business’ programme helped nearly 7,000 businesses to start, creating over 10,000 jobs over the course of 30 months. It levered nearly £3 of private funding for every £1 spent by BIS. The Programme delivered remarkable value for money, helping to create sustainable businesses that make a long term contribution to the UK economy in areas disproportionally affected by the downturn in the economy, generating new jobs and taxation revenues and supporting the Government’s Economic Growth strategy.
