The Engine is a social business consultancy that works with communities to get trading ventures off the ground.  We move beyond advice to set up joint trading ventures with community organisations.  We work with you, using your vision and our expertise.

Every community organisation has knowledge of local people and local problems – we call that market intelligence. Share that market intelligence with us giving us a background of the problems and your organisation’s solution – and we will make it happen.

If you are an organisation that is hungry for change, we can work with you to bring products and services to market that will benefit the communities you serve.  That may sound too good to be true?  We can assure you it is true…but there is a downside; we can only work with a small number of organisations.  Could that be yours?

We love the excitement of all aspect of business planning and then translating that into a business model that works…then promoting it on the internet – we have great connections with different social enterprises and agencies to bring your products to market.
