MORE than 800 hours of business advice has been shared with 270 companies in the first year of an initiative.
Winchester City Council teamed up with Enterprise First in June last year to offer free advice, training and networking at informal monthly sessions held in Alresford, Bishop’s Waltham, Denmead, Winchester city centre and Wickham.
Winchester City Council’s deputy leader and portfolio holder for business partnerships, Councillor Rob Humby said: ‘We are delighted with the success of the first year of this service which has helped businesses across our district to set up, secure funding from central and local government and to grow and expand.’
Networking events are usually held on the third Thursday of every month.
