The Grimsby & Cleethorpes Area Enterprise Agency Ltd (Enterprise Agency) was incorporated in 1985 and was a joint venture between the Local Authority and large Private Sector Companies to fill the gap in lack of local support for business start ups and existing small and medium sized businesses, both an integral part of the local supply chain to these larger organisations.
The Enterprise Agency is the only affiliated professional business support organisation in NEL and as such its activities are monitored by external bodies. It is committed to providing a professional and customer focussed service to all its clients.
Over the past years 30 years The Enterprise Agency has worked with many Government Bodies eg TEC, Business Link, DWP etc providing a wide range of business support and in particular supporting new business starts.
The Enterprise Agency is a member of the National Enterprise Network (NEN) which means it plays an active part in the National lobbying forum with access to ‘movers and shakers’ within the business decision making environment. It also enables Regional and National programmes to be delivered in NEL by a local Provider and helps to support the local economy by bringing income to NEL from external sources.
