Power of Three
To effectively support the Armed Forces community in Enterprise X-Forces has brought together key players from Government, Charity and Corporates.
Each of these stakeholders play a crucial role on an individual’s journey through enterprise learning, development and ongoing support for sustainability.
Through knowledge exchange, supply chain diversity, mentoring and training support; Big Business has demonstrated positive impact on start-ups and scale-ups, putting another dimension on CSR².
The X-Forces scheme is a fantastic programme. The skills that Service personnel can bring to business are a great asset to the UK and it is important that they have every chance to start their own firm; or to contribute to the growth of existing firms. Initiatives like X-Forces celebrate and help to grow our national entrepreneurial spirit, which will play a crucial role in driving our return to long-term economic growth.
