Business Support Services

Welcome to the Inclusive Enterprise Programme (IEP) – CWRT’s latest project partly funded by the European Structural and Investment Fund and part of the CWLEP’s Business Support Programme.

Over its twelve years of assisting businesses, CWRT has recognised that mentoring and guidance are just as important as receiving finance. We also appreciate that the approach to every single individual should be specifically tailored according to their needs.

CWRT has now partnered with The Women’s Economy (WE), a long standing, highly reputable provider of women-focused business support in the region, and Warwickshire County Council, in order to offer specialist business support in Warwickshire.

We will deliver two intensive business support programmes through the Inclusive Enterprise Programme in Warwickshire which are specifically tailored to meet the needs of client groups that are both under-represented in business start-up and growth and which are not always served by mainstream business support services.

CWRT’s support will complement a new “general” county-wide start up service for individuals who have ambitions to start a business and start-up business in their first 12 months of trading.

It will also complement existing specialist support at sub-regional level by focusing on other groups who experience barriers to enterprise including women, lone parents, carers, people with health conditions, ex-offenders and older people.

The Inclusive Enterprise Programme is part of the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Support Programme.
