Entrepreneurs Connect Launch

Share this article

We are delighted to invite all entrepreneurs to the launch of Entrepreneurs Connect, an initiative that we have co-founded with the University of Lincoln’s Research & Enterprise Department.

This new network aims to provide a creative and interactive platform, in the form of dynamic quarterly events and workshops, to bring together Greater Lincolnshire’s entrepreneurs. Like-minded, forward-thinking business founders will be able to exchange knowledge and create a strong and inclusive network of enterprising minds.

To set the tone of this network, we’re focusing the first event on the value of connections in starting and running a successful business. After some informal networking over brunch, we’ll outline the plans for Entrepreneurs Connect, before welcoming our dynamic panel of entrepreneurs to lead a discussion and Q&A on the benefits of forging and harnessing connections in the business world. It’s then over to our audience for a Q&A and collaborative discussion on the subject and what you want to see from this network in future.

Thank you to our panellists:

Zara and Ellie Pickles – Co-Founders of Cognito Bar and Restaurant

Dumi Siwo – Founder and Creative Director of Firmative

Zoe King – Director of Epix Media, Independent Governor of the University of Lincoln’s Board of Governors and Growth Hub Governance Board Member for the Greater Lincolnshire LEP

Peter Watson – Managing Director and Co-founder of marketing agency Distract and investment and growth incubator, Featured.
