Suffolk training and enterprise agency Menta has been shortlisted for two national awards.

The not-for-profit organisation which is based in Bury St Edmunds and celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, has been nominated for the Future of Enterprise Support and the Local Enterprise Agency of the Year awards run by the National Enterprise Network.

The annual awards ceremony will take place at the British Library in London tomorrow when the winners will be announced.

Alex Till, chief executive of Menta, said: “We’re all really chuffed to make the shortlist, especially when you consider we’re up against agencies from across the country. It’s especially pleasing because this year we mark 30 years of helping businesses in Suffolk.

“The Menta team work hard to ensure small firms across the county receive the support they need whether it’s one-to-one advice, skills and knowledge training through our business workshop programme or networking opportunities.

“We’ve expanded the range of services available this year and have big plans for 2015. This has been recognised with us being nominated for the ‘Future of Enterprise Support’ award.”

Mr Till added: “Thanks to all our sponsors and partners – I think we’ve shown that Suffolk can compete with the best in the country.”
