Hear from one of our Business Captains:
"This new Hub offers a vital platform for collaboration and will help to bring us all together so we can all learn from each other, and support each other, in business.”
Karen Porter, Communications Manager at Landmarc Solutions, and Business Captain on the Knowledge Exchange Hub.
Antony Baines, Executive Director of Operations at The Royal British Legion
“We are delighted to have worked with X-Forces Enterprise (XFE) to support the development of a new digital hub which will provide our Armed Forces Community with easy access to information and guidance on self-employment. During these challenging times, it is more important than ever that much-needed advice and information is readily available to anyone who needs it within the Armed Forces community.
The XFE resource is free to use and includes a bespoke range of materials, tips and tools from business ownership information to access to free events and peer-to-peer support. The hub compliments the vital support already offered by XFE to our Armed Forces Community and will be a much-needed and welcome aid for anyone who has questions around self-employment, and the new legislation and support measures available in the wake of Covid-19.”
Lt General Richard Nugee CB, CVO, CBE, former Chief of Defence People (CDP), Patron of X-Forces Enterprise (XFE)
“The launch of the new Knowledge Exchange Hub is a fantastic illustration of the growing importance of enterprise learning across the Armed Forces community. The revolutionary XFE hub not only provides peer to peer support; it will inspire experts within both the business and charity sectors to engage, contribute or simply have the reassurance that their beneficiaries are being supported.”
Ren Kapur MBE, CEO and Founder of X-Forces Enterprise
"The hub will provide a foundation of vital knowledge not only for those who have already started a business, but it gives those who are considering it an opportunity to engage with people who are a little further along in that journey as well as industry and sector experts. For many people feeling alone, at a cross-roads or even at a dead-end, who can have personal and financial consequences, this hub will allow people to dip-into support at a pace that suits them."
