About

Festival of Enterprise is the fuel you need to get your business to where you want it to be. And sooner, rather than later

Strategy can be sidetracked in the day to day running of a business, and scaling up takes the back seat as you end up dealing with piles of paperwork, projects going wrong or dealing with your overflowing inbox.

This shows in the statistics – according to the ScaleUp Institute, scaleups bring in £1.3tn of the £1.9tn generated by all UK SMEs. The remainder is brought in by millions of companies not making anywhere near as much of an impact as they could.

Theres clearly more than a few secrets business owners need to learn about when it comes to growth. Fortunately, the Festival of Enterprise will reveal them all.

Freedom to focus

The suppliers you’ll meet at the exhibition part of the event will have expertise in areas you don’t.

They will show you how they can free your business up to focus on what it does best.

Successful businesses often delegate non-core tasks. It frees them from tasks that other people are better suited for. It enables them to focus on growth.

Keeping you on track with the things that matter most

The demands of running a business day to day can get you sidetracked from the strategy.

Those demands can also impede your creativity and innovation.

Being in the company of thousands of other owners and entrepreneurs is invigorating.

We call it “being in the ideas zone.”

It’s a place that all business owners and managers need to be in from time to time.
