Learn how to start, fund and scale your business! York Business Week have teamed up with Make It York and the York & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce to bring you an exciting showcase event focused on all you need to know to start up and grow your early stage business.
Taking place at the recently refurbished De Grey Rooms, the event will feature inspirational talks from founders and business leaders and a series of panel sessions designed to give you all the information and encouragement you need to go away and do it yourself.
Our speakers will include David Kerfoot, Chair of York, North Yorkshire & East Riding LEP who built up a hugely successful North Yorkshire business. He will share 'Kerf's Top Ten Tips' illustrated by stories and mistakes he made but learnt from along the way. You will also hear from Dr John Park, a serial technology entrepreneur and award winning academic who has successfully developed and launched products with some of the world’s biggest companies including Procter & Gamble and PepsiCo.
Our panel sessions will provide you with a wealth of expertise, featuring a range of York based businesses alongside experts from Business Enterprise Fund and the Ad:venture Start-up programme, amongst others.
Alongside the main event there will be a number of exhibitors who have expertise in many of the areas you will need to consider when setting up or planning to grow. This will include funding, grants, contracts, networking benefits, website development, marketing, social media and more.
