Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce welcomed 16 new businesses when they launched this years ‘Future Chamber’ initiative. The exciting concept is now in its second year and provides FREE Enterprise Level Membership in addition to a structured program of relevant business and personal development activity throughout the year for business owners aged 35 or under.

As the Ayrshire Chamber celebrated their platinum 70th year in 2017, one of the key areas of focus was to engage with and support a younger audience from across Ayrshire.

Lisa Stewart, Future Chamber Lead said “Future Chamber focuses on young entrepreneurship and innovation and reflects the Chamber’s commitment to the future economic and business growth across Ayrshire. I am delighted with the quality of this year’s intake and look forward to working with them in the year ahead. I am sure they will make the most of this free membership”

Future Chamber members will be able to access the extensive range of events and networking opportunities, obtain legal, tax, health & safety and HR support, free editorial exposure within the quarterly ‘Your Business’ magazine and much more.

Kirsty Cassels of Building Together CIC, one of our new ‘Future Chamber’ members said: “The networking opportunities are the main reason I wanted to join. The wealth of experience available is invaluable in setting up a new business. The support so far has been incredible and it’s only week 2!”

Amanda Su Brown, said, “I run The LinkedIn Effect and am looking forward to getting to know more of the Future Chamber and wider Chamber network over the next 12 months. The Future Chamber is going to support me with personal development objectives and provide the opportunity to be part of something new with like-minded people.”

Chamber CEO Val Russell says “This is a natural progression of some of the work Ayrshire Chamber already does with young people as part of Developing the Young Workforce. AYE (Ayrshire Young Entrepreneurs) exposes young people whilst at school to the possibilities of having their own business.”

Ayrshire Chamber would like to thank our Platinum Partners for Business for their continued support of this fantastic initiative which provides fully funded Chamber membership for one year.
