Welcome to Business Leader

Inspiring Business Breakthrough.

Your growth is our priority.

We’re on a mission to help established businesses across the UK unlock their full potential. We’re your destination for business insight, tools, community, and mentoring. At our core, we provide a place for leaders to learn, network, and grow.

Our vision is shaped by leading entrepreneur Richard Harpin, who acquired Business Leader in 2023. Richard has personally experienced the trials and triumphs of growing a business, having taken his own venture HomeServe from £50,000 of initial capital to a sale in 2023 for £4.1bn. So, we understand the unique challenges faced by established companies seeking to scale up. That’s why we’re revolutionising support for this often overlooked group.

We serve as the ultimate destination for business insight tools, community, and mentoring. Our commitment is to inspire breakthroughs and bridge the support gap for companies, and we do this in a number of ways.

We offer diverse original content, including a magazine, weekly podcasts, a daily newsletter, and online features. Whether you prefer in-depth articles, thought-provoking interviews, or quick updates, our content is designed to offer everything you need to build a successful business.

Our events, roundtables, and summits are open to all, creating a platform for collaboration and knowledge exchange, and our prestigious awards celebrate excellence and spotlight the people who are shaping the future of UK business.

Central to our mission is our exclusive peer-to-peer membership community of CEOs and founders, enhancing the support network for those aiming to scale up their businesses. If you’re a growth minded leader, apply now to become a founding member and join our Founders 250 group.
