Essentially Naphtali & Associates is a community collective which, through a network of associates, develops and supports new small to medium enterprises. We do this by offering a package of advice & support, signposting and mentoring, but also through seeking to influence support from other private, statutory and voluntary organisations.
The defining principle of all Naphtali & Associates initiatives is to provide or help develop free and/or affordable services, online support for campaigns, and the development of small-scale employment opportunities for local communities.
Our pledge is to seek out enterprising people and enterprises to encourage their growth, marketing, collaboration and development.
