Relaunches

Enterprise for Entrepreneurs

Sector: business

Publisher: Reed Business Information

Frequency: monthly

Circulation: 45,357

Enterprise, a magazine for Britain’s small and medium sized entrepreneurs has been totally revamped. Aimed at business owners, directors and managers, the 84-page title has changed from a bi-monthly after demand from advertisers, says editor Penny Wilson. In addition the title has down-sized to A4, introduced a new masthead, bolder typography and high quality black and white photographs. “We’re driving the magazine down a practical route for SME managers,” reveals Wilson. It has regular features on business expansion, taxation and legislation as well as lifestyle and entertainment articles, and draws on the wide range on specialist writers in the Reed portfolio.
