“As we had a strong relationship with the Wales Cooperative Centre, we naturally turned to Social Business Wales for advice on forming a new social enterprise in order to continue the service after funding ended. We received support in writing a business plan as well as advice on market research ensuring we entered into the business model with eyes wide open. They have also been vocal supporters of our enterprise helping us raise our profile which has ultimately led to new business opportunities.“
Ben Treharne-Foose, Digital Technologies Manager, Big Click
