From the North Somerset Enterprise Agency to the hive – welcome to the future!

10th November 2022

After 12 months of focused work on the organisation, the North Somerset Enterprise Agency (NSEA) is proud to announce that they have rebranded to the hive, with a clear strategy focused on 3 pillars of support – business advice, office space, and developing the business community.

the hive has been offering professional support across the region for 35 years and, in that time, have worked with 1,000s of small businesses in their quest to start up and grow.

By merging NSEA and the hive, the companies have now simplified how people can access support, whether they need a physical space to work from, networking and community opportunities, or business support, it’s now all under one roof and one name, the hive.

The aim of the rebrand is to:

  • Ensure that there is greater awareness of the available support for businesses within the region
  • Attract start-ups who are looking for help and advice
  • Offer a home for businesses that are looking for office space

“This rebrand gets us match fit for the future.  In working on business strategy and growth, we are living the advice that we give to others.  We are confident and excited for the future and look forward to welcoming your business to the ‘home of business’ in North Somerset.” Angela Hicks, Chief Executive of the hive.

If you’re looking for support, please visit their updated website to explore the different opportunities that can help your business thrive!

Additionally, if you have something to say about your business, or want to offer advice to other businesses in the area, they’d love to hear from you.  Their intention is to showcase guest blogs every month which aim to inform and enrich other businesses in a similar situation and build a flourishing and supportive business community.
