An Environment Where There Is NO Fear of Failure!

Acorn Enterprise is run by business owners who want to give back to aspiring new business owners.

We provide an environment where there is no fear of failure, allowing like-minded people to test out and grow their new businesses together.

Ultimately, we exist to break down the barriers that prevent people from launching or growing a new business, by giving those we work with:

  • confidence
  • business skills
  • and clarity of where they want to be.

What Can We Do For You?

Since we launched in 2013, we have worked with over 150 new and growing businesses and student entrepreneurs, therefore, we really understand the challenges you're facing: 

  • "How do I work out my pricing?"
  • "I don't have any customers"
  • "Everyone I ask says my business idea 'sounds nice' but that isn't helpful!"


We run several training events and programmes to help new business owners and student entrepreneurs and these include: our 20 week Business Accelerator Programmes, Acorn Business Bootcamps and other entrepreneurial activities. 

If you're from a College or University, click here to learn how we can help you.
