Where it all started

Enterprise Incubator and Consultancy LLP (“EIC”) was founded in 2016 as the sister company of Enterprise Investment Partners LLP (“EIP”), which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”).

EIP began life as an appointed representative, becoming fully authorised by the FCA in 2014. As a small, growing business, the partners of EIP welcomed compliance advice that was not only accurate and cost effective, but advice that also provided practical solutions that worked in the real world.

A year after receiving authorisation from the FCA, EIP took on its first appointed representative and, after successfully dipping their toes in the water, the partners saw an opportunity to supplement EIP’s existing business of raising capital for SMEs, with operating an appointed representative network.

By doing so, EIP have been able to help other firms make the same transition that they had to go through themselves only a few years ago.

Thus, the idea for EIC was born! Joined by Joe Lazaris, an experienced compliance consultant who specialises in providing pragmatic compliance advice to small businesses, EIC becomes the regulation and compliance arm of the wider Enterprise group.

We are dedicated to helping you meet your regulatory obligations and, most importantly, flourish.

Our ethos – what to expect from us

Accuracy. Commerciality. Simplicity.

  • Accuracy – we know from experience how important it is to be able to speak to a regulatory adviser you can rely on, that knows what they are talking about and can answer questions with precision
  • Commerciality – we have two small businesses in our group that both deal with compliance on a daily basis. We know the pressures you are under because we are under them too. We wouldn’t offer you a service that we wouldn’t be happy receiving ourselves
  • Simplicity – we know that straightforward solutions add the most value to a business over the longest period of time.

FCA regulation and compliance is a complicated business that isn’t going to go away, but that doesn’t mean it has to weigh you down or keep you awake at night.

With these three principles in mind, and by putting our unique blend of regulatory knowledge and real-world industry experience to good use, we can provide you with a range of compliance solutions that are easy to understand, useful and work in practice.

This will help free up your time so you can focus on what you do best – leading and growing your businesses.
