North Bay Beach in Scarborough 2012 saw the launch of Enterprise Rockers with the aim to make life just that little bit better for Micro business owners.  There was no funding, no bank loans or corporate sponsorship just the want and belief of two people, Tony and Tina who wanted to spread the word that more recognition was need for the smallest businesses in the world.  This had all been brought about by the time and money they too had invested into their own business which resulted in a lot of work to get the interest their businesses need to move them forward.

From that day Enterprise Rockers has gown and so have the number of micro businesses, which in the UK only there are just under 5 million micro businesses with an estimated 5,000 new business starting their own path each year to self employment.  Enterprise Rockers support these business owners to keep them going and to flourish as a business owner.
