Theresa May, Home Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities, joined Housing Solutions in presenting their residents numerous start-up support packages as they graduated from their Strive Further Start-up training programme. “It’s a great day and exciting to see the great work [Enterprise CUBE] are doing in helping residents to start businesses,” said the Home Secretary before going on to present certificates to start-ups she hopes will go on to become successful businesses that will create employment for other people in the community.
The Enterprise CUBE had been working with Housing Solutions residents for three months before they presented to an impressive panel which included Cllr David Burbage leader of Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, John Petit Housing Solutions Chief Executive and Simon Maddox of O&K Accountants.
The panel awarded an incredible package of Housing Solutions backed start-up support including: social start-up loans, contracts, memberships to the chamber of commerce, free marketing and ongoing support from the CUBE team.
