Business Support:
North Essex Economic Board

The North Essex Economic Board (NEEB) is dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs and business leaders across Maldon, Tendring, Colchester, Chelmsford, and Braintree. It offers a remarkable opportunity to tap into a wealth of experts and resources that can act as a seamless extension of your own team.

Ready to Help

Delivered by business support organisation, Let’s Do Business Group (under the programme name ‘Backing Essex Business’), NEEB has utilised funding provided through the UK Shared Prosperity fund to provide a comprehensive collection of services that can be accessed completely free of charge. Whether you need advice on strategy or financial planning, help to access finance, some training in particular areas of your business, or simply someone to run ideas past and talk through challenges, the team of business experts are here and ready to listen.

The support is available for start-ups and established businesses, recognising that sometimes we all need a helping hand or an outsider’s perspective to align our thinking and move things forward.

How can this service help you, and why it is important to sometimes seek outside help to achieve your growth goals?

Free Expert Guidance

You can access up to 12 hours of free consultations with experts who can help you navigate challenges, refine your business strategy, and optimize your financial planning. Whether you are a startup seeking guidance on market entry or an established business aiming for growth, these experienced professionals can offer tailored advice to address your specific needs.

Accessing Finance for Growth

Securing financial resources is a common hurdle for businesses looking to expand. Whether you are exploring traditional business loans, grants, or alternative funding sources, the team can guide you through the process – ensuring you discover the right finance for you and helping to put together the strongest application. You will gain a financial partner dedicated to helping you achieve your growth objectives.

Free Training and Events

A successful business is only as strong as its team. Recognising the importance of upskilling, the programme offers a range of free training sessions and events. From workshops on setting up a business, to getting to grips with AI and improving digital skills, your team can access the knowledge and tools necessary to stay competitive in an ever-evolving business landscape.

An Outsider’s Perspective

One of the most significant advantages of the programme is access to an outsider’s perspective. By gaining your very own business mentor, you can utilise a wealth of experience and a diverse set of skills. Most importantly, it allows you to take a step back and make objective decisions for the benefit of your business.
