Business team offers advice

A group of Ilkeston businesses have set up a support group to help get new firms up and running.

The Business One Stop Support Network (BOSS) is a group of local business professionals who have come together to offer help and support to new and small businesses in the local area.

BOSS is based in Ilkeston but works with firms based all over the East Midlands.

Member, Matt Stenson of MS Accountancy, said: “Our main support service is offered via monthly breakfast meetings.

“These meetings are friendly and relaxed and consist of a mixture of business advice presentations, question and answer sessions and networking opportunities.”

The next monthly meeting is on Tuesday September 4 and Matt is hoping that some new and upcoming Ilkeston companies will turn up.

Meetings are held at the Avago Craft Centre, Wood Street, Ilkeston from 7.45am - 9.30am.
