KTN Entrepreneurs’ Forum
A series of networking events bringing together local entrepreneurs from the tech, creative and digital sectors to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
WHAT THE CLIENT WANTED / THE ASK
The Knowledge Transfer Network provide free access to funding and finance and through a series of events they wanted to expand their presence in the North of England. The brief for this event was very simple – to create an engaging environment for business owners from the tech, creative and digital industries to come together to learn from one another and form business relationships.
HOW WE ACHIEVED THIS / THE OUTCOME
The event format was kept relaxed with plenty of opportunity for networking and collaboration between large businesses and startups. We used attendee feedback to select monthly business topics and invited local business owners to speak and share their journey and facilitate group discussions. As a result we held 31 events in total, and expanded from Sheffield into Liverpool and Manchester, the events attracted over 1,300 targeted business owners from the tech, creative and digital communities.
“Freshly Squeezed are a great team to work with! They showed real commitment, and enthusiasm to the event and they went that extra mile to ensure we were supported throughout the event planning process. In particular, I really appreciated their ability to anticipate my needs and proactively put things into place to save me time or to ensure we covered all bases. I was made to feel at ease, and had every confidence that I could just show up on the day and everything else would be taken care of.”
