About us

Who we are

We are a business-led, business-focused community for new, established and growing businesses across Buckinghamshire.

We provide our members with knowledge, support and opportunities for growth. By getting involved, you join thousands of other members benefiting from our knowledge, connections, facilities, products and services.

From our inception in 2011, when 10 local entrepreneurs and business leaders got together to discuss how to encourage business growth in Buckinghamshire, our ‘doing-it-for-ourselves’ mentality has generated a thriving business community of over 10,000 members – and growing.

Get involved. Join our community.

What we do

Running a business is tough. And with so many agencies, associations and federations regulating and advising you, it’s not always clear who to turn to for help. That’s where we come in.

We operate as the central information and support hub for all businesses in Buckinghamshire – advising, referring and bringing people together.

Our teams of experienced business advisors, supported by our members, partners and local authorities, are interested in your business and provide on-going, long-term support and services. Together, we create a unique and vibrant business community that you can be part of and benefit from.
