BizFizz brings tremendous practical benefit for the individual entrepreneur and in so doing, it also transforms communities.
BizFizz brings to a community:
- A dedicated Coach promoting entrepreneurship.
- A huge amount of positive publicity for local enterprise and the idea of community development through entrepreneurship.
- A network in place with a core of 30-60 key people on the Local Experts Panel, meeting monthly to support local entrepreneurs and 300 more behind them, who have ‘bought-in’ to the idea of supporting local entrepreneurs.
BizFizz results in:
- Increased business start-up and survival.
- Job creation.
- Improved personal incomes for entrepreneurs, their employees and sub-contractors.
- Retention of wealth in the community.
- The building up of economic and social capital in the community.
BizFizz also brings about a significant cultural change in the community:
- A community educated about the importance of local wealth creation and dedicated to supporting its local entrepreneurs.
- A better networked and connected community with private, public and community sectors working together, bringing benefits beyond BizFizz, in dealing with community issues, public services, and planning.
- Increased confidence and sense of self-reliance among the community as a whole and its leaders. A move from dependence on external solutions to generating community action and fostering local visions.
