The Pembrokeshire Enterprise Network (PEN) is a network aimed at supporting and connecting small to medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs in the county, on the issues that matter to them.
The first meeting for 2019 took place at Twr Y Felin in St Davids on 29 January.
The event provided small to medium sized enterprises in the county, with the opportunity to learn from other small businesses from both Pembrokeshire and across Wales. Attendees were able to network, make new connections and share experiences.

One of the aims for the network, is to help support and inform the Pembrokeshire Business Panel. We will be working with them through PEN, to provide a rounded, connected, and supportive environment for businesses of all sizes, and in all locations, to grow and share experiences.
We at PLANED want to hear from all small to medium sized enterprises about the issues they want to discuss, areas they want support with and any ideas for speakers, topics and venues for future PEN events.
With thanks to those employers and partners who have already agreed to open their doors to the network for a series of bespoke engagement events this summer.
Please contact Ben, Networks Officer for further details, and to see how your business can get involved!
