Ellanstone was founded and established on the Isle of Man and has its roots there. We support the Island in many ways as we can.
The Isle of Man actively encourages businesses and people to locate there and with its 'can do' attitude the Government provides a number of support and grant programmes to those who wish to establish themselves on the Island.
Laurence Skelly, Minister for the Department for Enterprise says:
“The success of Island businesses is fundamental to the mission of the Department for Enterprise. The Programme for Government makes a clear commitment to maintaining an “Enterprise and Opportunity Island” where local entrepreneurship is supported and thriving and more new businesses are choosing to call the Isle of Man home. As a Department we are integral in moving this forward.
As we continue to forge an environment that allows businesses to thrive and flourish, the Government will work tirelessly to provide funding and support to support local businesses at all stages of growth while working to attract new enterprise and jobs to our Island”

The attitude towards both business and lifestyle is 'The Isle of Man – where you can'.
