The Soldiers’ Charity has recently awarded X-Forces Enterprise a grant of £48,000 to help provide employment workshops for veterans.
X-Forces Enterprise is an award-winning Community Interest Company that nurtures entrepreneurial ambition in the UK military community and are the official delivery partner to the governments Start-Up loans scheme and the Careers Transition Partnership (MOD). It has supported over 1,300 entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and has helped thousands more through training, events and mentoring provisions.
Ren Kapur MBE, Founder & CEO, X-Forces Enterprise speaks fondly about our partnership:
“The partnership with The Soldiers’ Charity is absolutely instrumental to the wider armed forces community, as it allows us to be able to take the programme where ever is required across the United Kingdom. The partnership allows us to support enterprise learning both for people who embark in self-employment, but more importantly, to ensure that people are making the right choices made on an informed decision to start their own business. Working with partners like The Soldiers’ Charity allows X-Forces Enterprise to do the right thing by the Armed Forces community for people who have served as well as their spouses or family members.
“Enterprise skills are such important life skills and are incredibly valuable inside employment as they are in self-employment, and for that reason we are extremely proud and delighted that the work we do with ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has continued into another year. It is important to give individuals the tools and support to rule-in or rule-out self-employment. We are so grateful to The Soldiers’ Charity who allow us to deliver these programmes in parts of the country where there isn’t the support system”.
