Socially enterprising since 1983

Record year for Wenta, helping 1009 new businesses to start up in 2023-2024.

So the 2023-2024 impact data is in and the Wenta Team are very proud to share that, over the past year, Wenta has helped over 1009 new businesses to start up.

In a record year of exponential growth, the year 2023-2024 has seen Wenta deliver 56,569 of business support hours to new and early-growth stage business owners.  That's specialist, impartial business advice and CPD skills training on subjects from 'Website Development' to 'Managing Cashflow'.  It's a 30% increase on 2022-2023 and a timely milestone in the year that Wenta celebrated its 40th Anniversary. 

The record year further demonstrates Wenta's solid commitment to fostering entrepreneurship and providing inclusive advice and support to everyone who wants to start, run or grow their own business.  Wenta's support has contributed to generating a substantial £86 million in GVA, marking a significant impact on the local economy.

Despite a decrease in grants delivery over the past year, due to changes in the funding landscape and a scarcity of government grants, Wenta has continued to help both new and early-stage business owners learn new skills, whilst also gaining CPD accreditation, and access practical, down-to-earth, impartial business advice from Wenta's experienced team of Business and Net Zero Advisors. 

Commenting on the annual review results, Ed Jordan, CEO at Wenta, said:
"Wenta is here for everyone to be able to access free business support, regardless of background.  No barriers, just economic opportunity for all.  That is why we do what we do and that is why we are seeing our reach and impact grow from strength to strength.  I am really proud of the team for this record achievement."

Wenta's full Annual Review will be available in Summer 2024.  In the meantime, if you or someone you know is looking to start a new business or get help with an existing one, the Wenta Team are here to help.
