EBF is open to reputable and professionally-run SMEs from all business sectors whose owners/managers are aiming to develop and grow their business in the Essex area.
Membership is not simply by request – we will ask for business references and these will be checked. Your application will also be reviewed by our committee and if approved you will be allowed to join. We aim to keep the standard of members high within our group so that each of us can refer other members without worry.
