NBV committed to help for start-up businesses

Not-for-profit business support organisation NBV has renewed its commitment to continue support to local businesses as planned changes in the way business support is delivered get underway this month.

NBV delivers many business support activities, including Business Link services, across Nottinghamshire and as Government changes to the Business Link service occur, NBV says it will ‘continue to offer a comprehensive range of business support services to start-up businesses and growing SMEs’.

NBV has developed a range of new services to support new and existing businesses, as well as focusing on ensuring clients have the opportunity to discuss their business idea face to face with an experienced adviser.

In addition to offering skills training and business advice to pre-start-ups, new and existing businesses, NBV has introduced a tailored mentoring package to fuel business growth.

Evolve Mentoring gives start-ups and growing SMEs access to a dedicated mentor and forum of business experts for six months with mentoring provided face to face or remotely as preferred by the business owner.

To help small businesses promote a professional business image without the headache of property leasing or the daily commute, NBV has also expanded its Virtual Office Service, with offices across the area.

NBV CEO, Richard Dearden says: “We are receiving many calls and questions from business owners as they are concerned over the changes to business support. Whilst changes are happening, NBV are still firmly on the map and are here offering an array of services that will help businesses start and grow successfully.”
