Entrepreneurial networks

Networks to support the entrepreneur

Peer support and business networks have been shown to be very important for entrepreneurs. We encourage entrepreneurs to get involved in local and/or even national entrepreneurial activities. Support and partnerships can be found at local level. There is power in cooperation.
