The first Norfolk Enterprise Festival is now just days away.
Beinng staged on 22 September, it will provide a forum for entrepreneurs across the county to meet, mingle and celebrate the thriving business community.
Attendees will be able to hear from some of Norfolk’s most successful entrepreneurs at a series of talks, participate in workshops and receive feedback from their peers.
The brainchild of local businessman Mark Lapping, together with George Freeman, MP for Mid Norfolk, the festival hopes to drive prosperity and growth for small businesses across the county.
“Norfolk is a powerhouse of high growth small businesses in all sectors, from technology to tourism, gin to genetics, finance to food, creating jobs and innovative products. But the micro and start-up sector needs a stronger voice and all of us in public office or private enterprise need to reach out to show our support,” said Mark.
“We’ve started this Festival to create a forum for the entrepreneurial community to come together and help make sure its voice is properly heard.
“We believe that the Norfolk Enterprise Festival is the intervention the county needs to take its potential to the next level.”
Chris Starkie, Chief Executive Officer at New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership added: “This event will help to turn great ideas into the successful businesses of tomorrow.”
The festival will take place on Saturday, September 22 at Westacre Theatre.
