to support your growth


We design and deliver innovative integrated support
for entrepreneurs and their teams.

As a non-profit we also work in the community delivering entrepreneurship programmes.

We use Entrepreneurship itself as the mechanism that both funds and supports those that we enable and encourage.

Our extensive integrated suite of support for entrepreneurs and their teams is founded on us employing:

We hold weekly all-company meetings to discuss our entrepreneurs' needs, how we can further develop our people, our technology and the range of support we offer, and to remind ourselves of our values and mission

Support for Entrepreneurs

Let's start a discussion if any of what you see is of interest.

Enterprise Coaching
& Mentoring
Throughout our entrepreneurs' journeys with us, and at the very core of our support, are regular one-to-one coaching and mentoring sessions with industry leaders and well established talented entrepreneurs.
& Business Planning
Entrepreneurs work closely with our Strategy and Accountancy teams in formulating their objectives and writing their business plans – Plan A, B and C – with regular minuted "Board Meetings" to enhance the chances of success.
& Collaboration
We advise, assist, train and coach entrepreneurs and their teams in making full sense and use of technology and collaboration tools that enhance and streamline their business processes.
Branding, Marketing
& Media
We establish brands and create compelling campaigns utilising the full spectrum of media and marketing options available including funnelling, video, social media, email and traditional marketing.
Websites, Apps
& Data Management
Increase discoverability, build trust and streamline customer acquisition with a cutting-edge website, app and back-office system directly integrated with business processes and third party applications.
Legal, Accounting
& Advisory
Adhering to company law and accounting best practices is easier with our team of business professionals and accountants who are behind our entrepreneurs every step of their startup and growth journey. All entrepreneurs we work with receive a free subscription to Xero for 12 months and a free IP Diagnostic.
& Fundraising
Our network of investors are ready to get involved; our Strategy and Accountancy Teams are on standby to assist with grant funding and loan applications; Marketing & Media teams provide crowdfunding campaign support. We have all the angles to raising money covered.
Creative Space, Incubation
& Networking
Creative Space is suspended until further notice, however we are still supporting our existing members remotely.
Creative and Technology Startups can benefit from our complete incubation support alongside us at the Enterprise Suite in London's Business Design Centre.
Soft Skills Training
Communicate effectively, present engagingly, manage conflict with ease, maintain resilience in stressful times.... Tough to master unless you're under the gentle guidance of Impact Factory, our neighbours and partners in our Soft Skills for Entrepreneurs workshops and courses.
Community Enterprise & Engagement
Company Director Apprenticeship Programme: anyone with a sound business idea can apply. Apprentices work for and are trained by us. They gain skills and experience in all of the areas we cover. As they study and work through their apprenticeship they also establish, launch and grow their very own enterprise.

Enterprise Starter was founded in 2016 by tech entrepreneur, Ash Youssef. His vision is for Enterprise Starter to be a place that entrepreneurs can visit, phone, refer to, engage with for support in the key areas concerning their startup and growth enterprises.

Our growth is testament to our offer - straightforward advice, support and service.

On March 1st 2020 we signed for a larger unit at the Business Design Centre and had planned to open our incubation centre in June. Alas that was not to be but we're back on track and will be opening very soon. It's difficult to give an exact date, but we're looking at when the Government lifts restrictions, the earliest.
