About Enterprise M3

The Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is a public/private partnership set up to support and sustain economic growth at a local level.



Enterprise M3 is an inclusive and authoritative catalyst for enterprise.

The LEP operates within a network of existing business support, provided by the private sector, the public sector, and a range of membership and not-for-profit sector bodies. The LEP will work in partnership with these bodies, but does not intend to compete with or duplicate their services. It also works within a network of existing public sector funding and decision making, on economic development, planning and infrastructure delivery for example. It also co-operates closely with the network of adjacent Local Enterprise Partnerships on issues of shared interest.

Enterprise M3 works as a catalyst within these networks to achieve its vision in four complementary ways:

We Co-ordinate - Bringing partners together to create improved outcomes through our Programme Management Group and our network of Action Groups.

We Inform - Communicating what is available from partners through our website and social media, our events and our networks.

We Advocate - Commissioning evidence and lobby for action from partners or government.

We Deliver - Carrying out activities ourselves, where this is the best solution.



We encourage partners and businesses, in particular, to become engaged and involved in the work of Enterprise M3 and bring their experience and expertise. There are many opportunities for individuals and organisations to become involved either as a member of our Board, member of one of our Action Groups, becoming an Apprenticeship Ambassador etc. If you would like to register your interest in becoming a member please email info@enterprisem3.org.uk with your details.
