Aldershot Enterprise Centre was established by WSX Enterprise in Autumn 2014. The former officer’s mess has been converted into affordable, serviced office space with the latest ICT technology working in the background.
We have been working with Hampshire County Council, Enterprise M3 and the Aldershot North Camp developers, Graingers and have developed Aldershot’s first one-stop enterprise centre for new entrepreneurs and growing businesses.
Day to day running of the Enterprise Centre will be overseen by our partners, Enterprising Office, an Army based business support charity.
Who is WSX Enterprise?
WSX has a simple mission – to provide practical, expert and trustworthy support that empowers entrepreneurs and businesses to create sustainable success, in ways that benefit and enrich the wider economy and community.
We’ve been doing this successfully for almost 20 years in partnership with a wide variety of different funding and delivery partners. Over this time we’ve amassed a wealth of experience, knowledge, and capabilities, whilst also building up an extensive network of close relationships with organisations and businesses across the South of England.
In the process, we’ve established a reputation as a thoroughly dependable team of seasoned professionals that inspires trust – a supremely safe pair of hands, with a proven track record of delivering successful programmes that produce real benefits.
We develop strong relationships based on trust, impartiality, integrity and transparency. We’re also firm believers in the power of cooperation and take pride in being helpful, flexible, responsive and positive. And we’ve been around long enough to realise that things change, and the only way to survive and thrive is to adapt – so we constantly look for innovative ways to overcome the new challenges that face us, our partners and those entrepreneurs and businesses we support.
Who is Enterprising Office?
Enterprising Office is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that offers outsourced support solutions to businesses by employing the talents and services of military dependants and ex-service personnel.
The idea is simple: There are a lot of people within the wider UK military community that is talented but need access to flexible and sustainable employment as they move around the UK and the world. There are lots of small and new businesses that need extra skills to grow but can’t afford to take on employees.
Enterprising Office simply plugs the two together to achieve the objectives for both!
Our goal is to help businesses to be perceived as more professional, to save time and money and to help them grow. Whether a small business in need of a basic message-taking service, or a larger organisation looking for a more complete office administration service we can help.
A core value of Enterprising Office is the collaboration and integration of the military, business, and civilian community. We are very passionate about what we do and strongly believe that with the right support a business can flourish; this is why we highly value our partnership with WSX Enterprise. We are proud to be part of the creation of the Aldershot Enterprise Centre.
