New businesses doing well with a little help from their friends
New businesses need all the help they can get when it comes to establishing themselves and in Norfolk there’s plenty of support available, ranging from support with marketing and social media, specialist advice to networking opportunities.
One of the organisations offering such help is Norfolk Chamber of Commerce, which sees membership as a good way for new businesses to get themselves noticed. Norfolk Chamber of Commerce is a business membership organisation supporting members of all sizes and from all sectors; from start-ups to large corporate members such as Aviva and Bernard Matthews.
