Enterprise Inquiry Interim Report

Santander logo
This report gives the interim findings from a series of Enterprise Inquiries run by BITC, with the support of Santander and the Department of Communities and Local Government.
Objectives of the inquiries
  • Bring together senior business leaders from large corporates with small business owners to gain better mutual understanding
  • Identify case studies of large businesses who are already helping small businesses grow
  • Identify a few simple actions which businesses attending the Inquiry can implement immediately

This report pulls together short case studies of large corporates who have supported SMEs, and SMEs who have successfully engaged with large businesses gathered at Enterprise Inquiry events in November 2011. It also gives summary learnings from the Inquiries, both on the barriers that can prevent small businesses from thriving and growing, and on how Business in the Community and its large business members can support small businesses.
