Enterprise agency Nwes is backing an international project to support entrepreneurship in developing countries.

The agency, which has headquarters in Norwich and a sizeable presence in Ipswich, has helped launch the Commonwealth Entrepreneur Development Project (CED) which seeks to find and guide aspiring business people in each of the 52 Commonwealth countries.

Nwes CEO, Kevin Horne recently visited the Kenyan High Commission in London to mark the start of the project. Kenya is acting as a pilot country for the initiative.

Nwes says helping small businesses grow is important in countries with disadvantaged communities, because it encourages skills development and empowers communities.

Special projects manager, Caron Lemmer said: “We are excited to see what impact these new entrepreneurs will have across the globe.”
