Stevenage stakeholders attended enterprise agency Wenta's 40th anniversary celebrations to support the town's business community.

Leader of Stevenage Borough Council Cllr Richard Henry was among those who attended the event at the House of Commons.

Since 2009, enterprise agency Wenta has managed the Business and Technology Centre (BTC) on Bessemer Drive on behalf of Stevenage Borough Council.

The event also saw the launch of Wenta's first business research paper on 'Action Zero', in partnership with The Enterprise Research Centre, as part of an initiative to help as many businesses as possible reduce their carbon footprint.

Cllr Henry said: "Stevenage Borough Council and Wenta are continuing to work together on helping as many local business owners as possible to reduce their carbon footprint.


"Wenta have developed a unique and simplified support service for small business owners to embark on their net zero journey.

"We are proud to have Wenta in Stevenage and we look forward to growing our impact at the Business and Technology Centre even further in the coming years to help more people in Stevenage to start, run and grow their own businesses."

Other attendees included representatives from Stevenage Development Board and Herts LEP, North Herts College and Hertfordshire County Council.
