Entrepreneurs Exchange, the nationwide programme that connects the next generation of British entrepreneurs with the UK’s most successful business founders, is to take place for the second time in Bristol on Thursday 2 March 2017.

As part of a series of events taking place simultaneously in 10 different locations across the UK, some of the country’s leading entrepreneurs will share their stories and offer real business advice to the next generation of business leaders.

In Bristol, budding entrepreneurs will hear from Nick Jenkins, founder of Moonpig.com, and David Sproxton CBE, co-founder and executive chairman of Aardman Animations.

The events will allow attendees to discover how these established and successful business leaders set up and grew their businesses, the challenges they have overcome to enable success, and the advice they wish they had been given when starting out.

The Bristol event will be hosted at the M Shed in Princes Wharf. It commences at 6pm and is free and open to all, enabling attendees to build networks with other like-minded entrepreneurs.

International Trade Minister Mark Garnier said: “Entrepreneurs are the driving force of our economy and their ideas have spawned some of our most recognised brands that have gone on to enjoy international success.

“Initiatives like the Entrepreneurs Exchange play an important role in bringing together successful UK entrepreneurs with future business leaders to provide the advice and experience that will help them nurture their ideas and bring them to audiences far beyond the UK.”
