FSB membership support
Enfield 1,000 Business Club
Enfield Council and the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) are pleased to announce that we have now reached 1,000 members. This particular offer has therefore expired, but for information on how to join the FSB as an Enfield business, visit FSB to explore membership options.
The FSB and Enfield Council ‘1000 Business Club’ networking events will continue to take place until all the new businesses’ 12 months membership has run. The event will take place on the third Monday of every month. Networking events will continue beyond the 1,000 Business Club offer in the borough for existing members of FSB.
During each event, FSB will present their regular FSB local update, ensuring businesses get the most from their membership, followed by a brief presentation. Businesses will then have a chance to freely network with other business owners online and via the chat room. It's a chance to hear about all the goings on in the borough, how businesses can access support and get valuable tips.
