Who we are.
Wenta is an independent, not-for-profit, social enterprise that exists to make it easier and greener to start and run a successful business.
We help all types of businesses from dog walkers to doughnut makers, drivers to divers.
We’ve been supporting business owners since 1983 and, to date, we’ve supported over 77,239 people in starting-up, maintaining or growing their own business. We have a national reach of over 5 million, through our combined digital and face-to-face services.
Between 2021-2022, Wenta supported 8,121 people with advice and support. We’ve supported 474 new business starts, delivered 2,939 advice sessions, supported businesses to create 661 new jobs, provided skills training to 3,079 people and delivered 33,471 hours of support.
Whilst Wenta is an independent organisation with no shareholders, we're also experienced in delivering service contracts on behalf of leps, local authorities, chambers, DWP and employability organisations.
