Entrepreneurs to be given a boost

Entrepreneurs from across the region will be given a boost with a new free event hosted by accountancy firm Hentons.

Experts from eight companies have come together to support start-ups and small businesses with advice and networking. Entrepreneurial advisers from Hentons, Lloyds, Weightmans, Fruition, BEF, Dynamic, Workspace Hub and Dynamo will speak.

Presentations will cover critical areas from raising funding to law, finance and tax planning.

Nadeem Ahmed, the managing partner at Hentons, said: “The Leeds city region is thriving with companies growing quickly in sectors ranging from digital to manufacturing. Every business owner faces challenges as they seek to grow and we brought together some talented speakers, from leading companies, to share their expertise.”

A report from research firm Duedil showed Leeds is outperforming Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh as a base for growing businesses. The study indicates that central Leeds has 81 fastgrowing firms with a combined turnover of £2.3bn.

The findings examined scale-ups, which are classed as a company which has achieved three years of 20 percent growth in revenues or staff. Westminster topped the survey, followed by Cambridge and Leeds.

The event will be held on 16 November from 15:30 to 18:30 at Northgate, 118 North Street, Leeds, LS2 7PN. Register for free at http://www.hentons.com/events/entrepreneurs-circle
