As with most rural communities, small businesses are the engines of Hornby's economy, and the key to our future. In the next few years, we expect many businesses to go through succession as long time owners retire, or new businesses to be created as needs and gaps arise. HICEEC also now provide micro-lending services.
HICEEC maintains a staff who is dedicated to support the small business sector, and particularly encourage business start-up, expansion, and collaborative efforts. Karen Ross has been involved in the business scene on Hornby for 30 years, and can quickly fill you in on opportunities you may be missing out on. Up to date information for the Hornby business community can be found on Facebook, Hornby Business Network.
