Supporting Businesses to Start, Survive & Grow

Originally the Small Firms Enterprise Development initiative, the Small Firms Enterprise Development Initiative (SFEDI) is now focused on raising the quality of enterprising skills by identifying and delivering programmes of support which increase start up and survival rates amongst small and micro business communities.

For almost two decades, SFEDI has engaged with key enterprise stakeholders, supporters, employers and the self-employed to improve their involvement in developing skills.

The SFEDI Group of companies include:

SFEDI Awards

SFEDI Solutions

SFEDI Directory


Institute of Enterprise & Entrepreneurs (IOEE)

The SFEDI Group consistently consults with a broad range of organisations within the sector to make best use of the advice and contributions provided in researching and developing sectoral skills solutions and policy recommendations.

This combined experience has provided the team with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the people development needs of businesses and the requirements of learning and skills support initiatives that seek to achieve public policy objectives.

Guided by the SFEDI Advisory Council, comprised of representatives from the major national membership and representative organisations for enterprise and business and enterprise support, the SFEDI Group ensures that all of the solutions provided are best placed and formulated to deliver the highest impact.
