Fancy Joining anetworking group with like-minded entrepreneurs from the military community?


The Forces Enterprise Network (Hub) is a registered social enterprise created by ateam of current military spouses already running their own businesses through postings, deployments, and family service life who want to share their tips and tricks so that you can do it too! It’s open to all who are living the service life –bethey spouses, partners, veterans or transitioning personnel.


Anna Harrison is aself-employed mortgage and insurance adviser for Forces Family Finance, and host to the Force Enterprise Network (Hub) Hampshire. “I have been overwhelmed by the support and popularity of our group. We started in humble beginnings when about eight of us got together to talk and support each other in our own businesses. Many of us had met during the ‘Supporting the Unsung Hero’ Business start up course in Portsmouth. We started meeting up


monthly and arranging events and it has grown from there.”


In support of the ‘on the ground’ networking groups Forces Enterprise Network have introduced an online Business Community via Facebook, which each week shares motivational posts, videos and ideas on how to succeed in business while living amilitary life.


If you have desire to start your own business or you’re already doing it and want asupportive group to help drive your ideas and would like to know more about starting your own networking group contact the team at Forces Enterprise Network and join aunique business community.
