Now in its fifth year, the Leicester Business Festival kicked off last week with some fantastic events. In excess of 100 business leaders turned out for the launch event at No.1 Great Central Square, the first people to enjoy this wonderful space.

Our own ‘Meet the Funders’ event on Tuesday morning took place at the Kube and brought together a host of business support providers under one roof. Marc Ford, business author and editor of ‘The Small Business Growth Magazine’ gave an energetic presentation with his top business tips and fun ‘thumb wars’ ice breaker.

Managing Director of Food Attraction, Jake Karia gave a short talk on his food manufacturing business and how the grant from the Digital Growth Programme and support from the Gateway had led to growth in his business under their brand Jake & Nayn’s.

A number of support providers gave a short elevator pitch to explain their services, a few can be seen here captured on the day:

It’s week two of the programme and there are plenty of events and workshops running so we hope you can take part and support this great fortnight. View the programme here.
