About Us


Engaging with a wider business network equals growth.  Our monthly First Friday events give you the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals, at different stages of their business journey. By looking at how we can work together, we are strengthening our local economy and safeguarding our futures.  We are a collaborative, supportive business community based in the Wakefield District.

We host monthly networking events on the First Friday of each month*. We move the events around the district to showcase venues and our members love discovering new places to visit! Previous venues have included Wakefield Town Hall, Castleford Tigers, Production Park & Nostell Priory.

We engage with our members individually and communicate regularly via newsletters, social media platforms and our website.

We’re a community with an emphasis on collaboration and we are here to help and support each other.

Non-members are welcome to attend one event as a taster session before signing up.  We ask that you book to attend using our Eventbrite page.  Check out our latest events HERE

Continue to improve your knowledge by continuing to increase your network. Each new contact is a unique opportunity to expand and grow
