A new business support group enjoyed a successful launch event in Brighouse.
We Mean Business has been launched by businesswomen Nikki Lockwood, Becky Ashwell, Rachel Gough and Beverley Shutak to offer support for small firms, sole traders and those thinking of starting a business.
Almost 60 people attended a networking event to get the venture under way.
Future meetings will be held from 9.30am to 11.30am on the second Wednesday of each month at Bailiff Bridge Community Centre.
The not-for-profit organisation aims to help generate business through networking, peer mentoring and business referrals.
Rachel said: “We saw a gap in the market to help people who are scared of networking come to networking events.
“We also want to help local people develop their business and get help with issues they face as well as celebrate successes they achieve – as being in business can be a lonely place.
“We’ve had an amazing response and the feedback we have had is that it is a brilliant idea and will make a big difference.”
