Project Has Helped 1,000 Welsh Entrepreneurs Establish
November 29, 2004
CARDIFF, WALES--One thousand people with disabilities in Wales have been helped to start their own businesses over the past 2 1/2 years under a project called "Enter", the BBC reported Wednesday.
The Enter project, directed through Disability Wales and sponsored by the Welsh Development Agency and the European Union, celebrated its 1,000th client last Wednesday. Some of those on hand for the celebration were entrepreneurs who have established their own companies, providing everything from computer technical support to crafts and legal consultant work.
Those served through the project received assistance from advisors who have disabilities and who have started their own business, said Martin Moore, Enter's client advisor network co-coordinator.
Organizers hope other countries in the United Kingdom will develop their own versions of Enter.
