Crucial Business Advice During Lockdown

Making an informed decision, especially with funding a new venture, is so very important at these difficult times. Therefore it’s imperative, more so than ever, to ensure you have a handrail of support from our team of experts and or other subject matter experts in business, admin and finance.

At X-Forces Enterprise (XFE) we provide the Armed Forces Community with free training, mentoring and access to funding. The training and mentoring are now digitalised to allow you to keep well informed. If you need funding, then we are still able to provide the usual service through the Government backed Start-Up Loans scheme. If you are an existing ex-Military or ex-Emergency services business and need government financial support over this period, please contact us through or head to our Contact Us page.

X-Forces CEO, Ren Kapur MBE: “We are grateful that we can still support individuals through the government Start up Loans Company and through the wider guidance from the British Business Bank. It is imperative, now more than ever, that we make informed decisions, especially about funding, through training and support. Research, Research and more Research has always been our mantra but more so now than ever’’

All of our training sessions are now held in virtual classrooms, with great feedback from the participants who have experienced the new style adapted programmes. Since 2013 we have provided more than 34,000 hours of training, supported 1,900 businesses and assisted access to funding in excess of £19.6m.

For some inspiration for now or something to consider for the future, don’t take our word for it, check out the experiences of some of our amazing beneficiaries:

As well as the core products and services we deliver directly we also work very closely with business bodies and experts, such as the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB). Our CEO is keeping in touch daily, with these partners, in order to bring the very best and latest information to share with our Armed Forces Community.

Do keep yourself informed by getting the latest and best information from the FSB.
