"Over the last 45 years, I've established and run a number of different businesses, building one into market leader in Europe. When I started, I experienced all the headaches that came with starting up. The time it took searching for advice and the best products and services to meet business needs out of 000s to choose from. Comparing prices, reputation and customer service. Dealing with pushy salespeople. Which suppliers could I trust and rely upon. Time I could ill afford to waste - and over the years, have met lots of other entrepreneurs who experienced the same frustrations as me: struggling to find what they needed compounded by the lack of a one-stop-shop.
Based on my experience, I have therefore selected what I regard as the best suppliers and provide links to them via a Marketplace to help others save time, money and hassle of having to shop around. Most of the products and services listed, I have personally used over the years. Others more recent, have been selected based on extensive research, the key objective being to select those which provide the best value-for-money. I hope the Marketplace and our other services are of use to you. Nigel Farren, Founder, Enterprise Hertfordshire
