The Enterprise Garden

The Enterprise Garden provides business start up advice and training to entrepreneurs and small businesses in Hertfordshire.

We are delighted to be partnering Start Your Own Business and sharing this valuable online resource with our clients.

We provide thorough, professional training with personalised support through mentoring and practical help with networking.

Our inspirational lead trainer, Jean Flower, has a track record of helping people achieve their entrepreneurship ambitions, and has personally experienced and overcome many of the hurdles that face start-ups - particularly women.

She says

“I looked around at what was on offer for people starting out in business and realised that, whilst there is advice and information out there, it’s all down to the new business owner to put it into practice. What they need is real help – and that’s why I launched The Enterprise Garden - to actually provide that help.”


Jean passionately believes that enterprise can transform people’s lives, giving them the opportunity to experience personal growth, new optimism and the motivation to succeed.

We organise training courses throughout Hertfordshire.

Watford Business Start-Up Support

Although there are plenty of online business directories, it can sometimes be quite difficult to find LOCAL companies who are genuinely keen to support you. For example if you are based in Watford, it makes sense to use an accountant, web designer or printer based in Watford who is prepared to help small businesses or new business start ups.
