Start-Up Figures November 2012

November was another busy month for North Somerset Enterprise Agency, seeing us help 15 new business ventures start within the boundaries of North Somerset. We are also very pleased to have helped and advised two new start-ups from just outside the area.

It is worth noting here that all of our services are available to non-North Somerset based businesses/people but subject, for some services, to a small fee. You can contact us for more information on the fee structure.

The 15 businesses based in North Somerset will initially create 19 new jobs, with the prospect of more to come in the future – it is great to see these fledgling businesses start to play their part in the vibrant local economy we have here in the region.

As ever, the sectors of the economy covered by these new enterprises is extremely diverse; from architectural design to van conversions via waste brokerage and costume hire!

Other businesses cover;

Bookkeeping, bridal make-up, computer training, foot health, gardening, garage services, handyman services, jewellery, mobile hairdressing, removals, t-shirt design, tutoring and window cleaning. So, as you can tell, there is no shortage of people coming forward ready to take the opportunity of ‘becoming your own boss’.

All of us here at NSEA wish all these new businesses every success for the future.
