Welcome to the X-Forces Podcast

For more than six years the X-Forces Enterprise team has been providing support to Service leavers and members of the military community in order to help them develop the skills and find the finance they need to either become self-employed or to start their own business.

This series of podcasts is dedicated to the incredible men and women who have demonstrated bravery and resilience not only by playing their part in protecting our country’s interests, but also in starting out on their own business ventures.

They will tell you about some of the incredible experiences they have had and the difficulties they have overcome in order to achieve their goals. They will also share their tips on how they achieved their own successes and some of the mistakes they made along the way.
