Bury St Edmunds-based enterprise agency Menta has won an Enterprise Support Organisation of the Year accolade at the National Enterprise Network’s annual awards.

Alex Till, chief executive of Menta, said: “We are thrilled to have won this award. We were recognised for the breadth of activities we provide to ensure local businesses succeed including training, networking opportunities, free business advice and our annual trade fair. We impressed the judges with our innovation and fresh approach to enterprise.

“My heartfelt thanks to Menta clients, our staff, board of directors, sponsors and patrons who’ve made this achievement possible.”
