Oxfordshire Business Enterprises

Our expert advisors provide one-to-one advice to new businesses.

Success stories, and what our clients say about our service.

Every year thousands of people, fired with the entrepreneurial spirit, decide to take the plunge and start their own small businesses. They're from all backgrounds and ages. Their businesses are based on every conceivable idea from gardening and IT to child minding, consultancy and arts & crafts. The buzz of being your own boss has few equals.

While many of these businesses succeed, sadly some fail within a short time of starting, usually due to a lack of proper preparation and planning. If only they had been able to get some quality help and new business advice ...

Well, here's the good news. If you are thinking of starting, or have recently started, a business in the Oxfordshire area, Oxfordshire Business Enterprises is here to help you. You can benefit from free high quality, expert advice on any aspect. More information about us.

We provide the free one-to-one new business advice service specifically to help you with your business - whatever it may be.
