Enterprising Macclesfield is funded by a combination of local individuals, businesses and grant funding. Since its switch to becoming a registered CIC, Enterprising Macclesfield has launched a sponsorship programme aimed at businesses and individuals. This has been launched with the aim of creating a sustainable enterprise support initiative, not dependent on public funding. This also provides successful local businesses and organisations with an opportunity to support our activities, and have a say in how we help shape the future of business in Macclesfield. The companies and individuals listed below are our biggest supporters and we thank them for their contributions in helping Enterprising Macclesfield achieve its current status and continued success.
If you would like to sponsor Enterprising Macclesfield please see the information and form at the bottom of this page, or get in touch with us to discuss with a member of the team.
