Greater Manchester AddVentures

Through GM AddVentures GMCVO encourages and hosts start-up community enterprises. We provide the formal structure that aspiring entrepreneurs can ‘plug into’ so that they can concentrate on testing and growing their venture without needing to set up a new charity or company.

As a member of GM AddVentures projects operate under GMCVO’s governance, legal status and banking facilities. Our intention is to make it easier for local people with ideas and skills to meet the needs of their community through ethical trading. Sharing our structure means that you can focus on developing the services, products and marketing to ensure it is a success.

Projects that grow can chose whether and when they set up as a legal entity and go independent. To date we have nurtured a sole practitioner, a co-operative and a Community Interest Company creating new services and jobs. Other members are growing and are choosing to stay in the GM AddVentures family. Equally, if initiatives find it difficult to get established or other opportunities arise the closure process is simple.
