When we see a good thing - we think it only right to share...

So when we heard about the The London Enterprise Festival, a two week long bonanza of world-class discussion, debate and London Enterprise Festivalinsight from global business leaders on topical industry themes, we got our social sharing hats on and here we are!

Here’s the lowdown:

Taking place between the 8th - 19th of March, London will be hosting its inaugural London Enterprise Festival (or LEF for short).

The festival plans to hold a unique series of speaker events featuring 50 influential CEOs and senior executives from EMEA, who will share their vast knowledge on what it takes to start and grow successful companies in today's business climate.

Over nine days, the LEF will present nine industry keynotes, discussions, debates and workshops to connect and inspire an intimate audience of entrepreneurs and professionals with the know-how and networks they need to succeed in the industries they love.  The whole thing will culminate in a forward-looking finale that brings everyone and everything from the festival together.

What this means in layman terms is that for 9 days you can go to day long events focused on specific startup / enterprise themes. On the 10th Day there’s an end of festival get together aiming to be the biggest entrepreneur party of the year.  A purchased ticket will give you access to an individual event and the end of festival finale!

8th - Communications

9th - Education & LearningLEF15

10th - Social Enterprise

11th - Food and Beverage

12th - Financial Services

15th - Health and Wellbeing

16th - Design and Fashion

17th - Entertainment and Gaming

18th - Marketplaces

19th - Finale

The industry focused speakers include senior leaders and founders from RBS, Microsoft, Heal’s, The Big Issue, Dezeen, Time Out Group, Innocent, Jaeger, Sony, Etsy and more, so for all the details and the full list of confirmed speakers, we’d advise you to go check out the LEF website directly and also the Eventbrite site where the tickets are currently on sale, and at a pretty accessible price too. 

Here’s the official blurb from the LEF guys themselves:

“Whether your passion lies in food, healthcare, technology or education, or you're keen to learn more about gaming or social enterprise, the LEF provides an open forum that allows you to attend the days you wish, learn London Enterprise Festivalmore about the industries you're interested in, connect with a relevant audience of people you may well need in your current or future endeavours, and hear up close and personal, the views, insights and stories of the business leaders at the forefront of their market.”

Hosted by the good folk at Bizoogo, the Festival happenings will take place at The Foundry, set within the fantastic Stables, right at the heart of Camden Market (aka London-Town for all you non Londonians).

It’s a great choice of venue - with all the hustle and bustle of the City and its suits and the digital / hipster / startup tones of Shoreditch just round the corner - Camden Market itself is a fab mix and melting pot of all what's good about the Capital. Wise choice folks at LEF15 we think!

We hope to hear good things from the inaugural London Enterprise Festival and a big high-five to the organisers for setting the tone for what looks likely to be a good couple of enterprising weeks in the big smoke.

To celebrate it further; LEF appears in our growing list of Startups Events and Festivals 2015 for the UK and Ireland.
