The North Essex Economic Board (NEEB) is thrilled to announce that the tenure for providing fully funded Business Support under NEEB’s 2023-2025 strategic plan has been won by Let’s Do Business Group (LDBG).

LDBG has been commissioned to provide a Business Support service in the area for another two years, expanding its offering to entrepreneurs looking for startup advice. Over the last 12 months, Let’s Do Business Group, through the Backing Essex Business service, has provided tailored support to a wealth of businesses, on topics such as accessing finance, marketing and promotion, improving productivity, business planning, staffing (including recruitment and retention), digital skills and decarbonisation.

Let’s Do Business Group’s Director of Services in Essex, Andy Turner, commented: “Myself and my team are delighted to have been awarded the NEEB contract for the coming two years, having delivered on all objectives under the previous contract. We have the team in place and both the experience and the expertise, alongside our chosen delivery partners, to ensure this is another success. We look forward to working with the economic teams at the local councils to support business growth in their particular areas, as well as the NEEB delivery board.”

 The continuation and expansion of this service means that businesses in North Essex will be able to benefit from a range of business support services that can help them build and grow. This includes services such as mentoring, skills training, tools and gaining the understanding needed to help businesses succeed. Whether you are starting a new business or looking to expand an existing one, the service can provide guidance, so that businesses can make the most of their potential and overcome any challenges they face along the way.

The project has been funded by Braintree, Colchester, Tendring, Chelmsford and Maldon district and city councils within the NEEB partnership who have committed up to 10% of their revenue allocation from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) in years 2 (2023/2024) and year 3 (2024/2025).

NEEB Chair Cllr Marie Goldman said: “We are excited to be working with Let’s Do Business Group alongside our new and soon to be announced strategy for 2023-2025. North Essex is a great place for businesses to start and grow. With the right skills, tools and understanding, businesses in North Essex can benefit from the support that is available to them. This support can help new and established businesses build their knowledge base, develop their skills and gain access to the resources they need to succeed.”
