MORE THAN
BUSINESS SPACE

The Essex Enterprise Centres offer a stimulating and supportive and managed working environment for individuals and small businesses.

How We Can Help

The Essex Enterprise Centres offer a stimulating and supportive and managed working environment for individuals and small businesses taking either their first steps in business and/or premises.

With many of the businesses in Essex employing less than 10 people it is important that suitable cost effective premises are available to enable new business start-ups to become established and grow.

More than just business space the Essex Enterprise Centres are part of a wider set of business development services geared up to help businesses develop and grow. Businesses benefit from the help and support of the centre’s business manager, links to wider services and the centre’s community of businesses.
