These included solo entrepreneurs, freelancers, pre-starts, early-stage startups, established SMEs, fast-growing scaleups, enterprise level businesses, business advisers, investors, students, academics, public sector representatives & more from across the UK & around the world.

This wouldn’t be possible without the financial support of our Sponsors & Exhibitors who help cover the costs of planning & organising our event in the 12 months leading up to it & enable us to keep the ticket prices as low as possible so that more startups & small businesses can attend (see who Sponsored & Exhibited in 2019 here).
