For the past two years we have hosted the Local Entrepreneur Forum, a jam-packed productive day bringing entrepreneurs, investors, and business experts together to learn, connect, and collaborate. It links entrepreneurs with people and resources they need to start up and thrive.
Last year we raised over £2000, 25 fruit trees, 2.5 tonnes of mulch, a horse paddock, and a half dozen massages for School Farm CSA, a local market garden farm - it's not just about money!
What else can we do to support more people in our community setting up projects and businesses? How can we create new ways we can invest? Please come to this pre-Local Entrepreneur
