The business advice you never thought you could afford

Enterprise Assist’s founder and senior consultant, Richard Carpenter, has built a strong reputation throughout the South West business community solid commercial experience, support and advice.

A baby boomer, Richard purchased a franchise at the age of 23 from a failing company, supplying tools and garage equipment. After the demise of the franchisor, Richard founded a buying group called Independent Van Sales Association and by encouraging the remaining franchisers to join the association in less than a year successfully sold the business.

Richard went on to build other successful businesses and spent a brief period in technology asset leasing to FTSE 100 organisations until 2005 when he founded Enterprise Assist Ltd to bring his considerable commercial experience to helping local businesses to thrive.
