IN Enterprise Hub

The IN Enterprise Hub is a not-for-profit Company Limited by Guarantee, established in 2020 by leaders of the local business community who are passionate about building a stronger economy that is inclusive and benefits everyone who lives and works across the National Forest.

We aim to build stronger partnerships for stronger growth. Our true strength lies in a collaborative approach, working in partnership so that we can truly understand and navigate social and economic factors at a local level.

The new hub provides a mechanism for partners to join efforts and expertise, to offer services that create opportunities for individuals and businesses to learn, develop and grow.

Our primary objective is to promote and inspire enterprise with a particular emphasis on encouraging new business creation and expansion together with activities that promote the economic and social well-being of the area.
