Entrepreneur Foundation

Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce has been representing businesses in the County since 1924. We sit at the heart of the community, working with businesses of all sizes and representing all sectors.

We are the largest independent business support organisation within Hertfordshire and we are an accredited member of the national British Chambers of Commerce network.

Our expertise in organisational development, training, marketing and sales combined with our business experience and established events programme will enable you to foster strategic partnerships, connect with other members and provide you and your staff with the knowledge and confidence to grow and sustain your business.

The Vision

The Chambers of Commerce network provides support to local businesses through a range of membership benefits, such as: information, events and training and via extensive networking opportunities.

Entrepreneurs are vital to business; individuals who have a vision, can inspire others to join them on their journey and drive the success of our local and national economy.

Hertfordshire Chamber recognises this need and is seeking to identify entrepreneurs who are passionate about their ideas; about turning their concepts into reality; and who have the energy to create new successful businesses.

The Entrepreneur Foundation has been designed to nurture and grow a new network of enterprising individuals who meet these criteria; offering a two-year initiative of guidance, training and support, supplied by Founder members, by Supporters and, of course, by the Chamber itself.
