Leicester Business Festival Events Supported by STWLC

The 2015 Leicester Business Festival (LBF) commenced on Monday 26th October and will run until Friday 6th November, and the Sir Thomas White Loan Charity is supporting two of the many events taking place.

Both of these are free to attend, and will provide a range of business owners and budding entrepreneurs the chance to develop their knowledge.

On Wednesday 28th October, between 10:00am and 12:00pm, one of our trustees David Howard will be in attendance at Open Coffee at De Montfort University.

This is a networking and community event for existing entrepreneurs and aspiring start-up founders who are interested in turning their ideas into real businesses. Attendees will be able to meet like-minded individuals, share ideas and receive advice.

Then on Wednesday 4th November, Sir Thomas White Loan Charity trustee and local businessman Gau Naik will be on the panel at SME Question Time which is being hosted in the Hugh Aston Building at De Montfort University.

This will run from 6:00pm to 9:00pm and is a great opportunity to ask questions from seasoned business people and to receive advice to help develop your venture.

Other panel members include Richard Jackson, who currently advises and mentors start-ups in Google City, London, Julie Holland, Director of the Glendonbrook Centre for Enterprise Development at Loughborough University, and Peter Ford, DMU’s award-winning Professor of Design, a specialist in assisting businesses of all sizes.

The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity is dedicated to supporting businesses in Leicestershire and Rutland with advice and funding. For more information on the Charity’s business loans, please click here.
