The Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is giving its full backing to Sheffield’s MADE festival.

The festival of entrepreneurship, which was launched by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg last week, will take place in Sheffield from 19 to 22 September. The MADE festival is growing quickly and it is expected that over 3,000 people with come to the City Region for this year’s event.

Highly successful entrepreneur and LEP Board Member David Grey MBE is encouraging aspiring business people to attend the event. David is the founder and chief of Sheffield-based diversified engineering group OSL and a senior figure within the Cutlers’ Company.

David said, “This hugely popular festival will bring thousands of entrepreneurs to the Sheffield City Region to create a hugely positive and creative environment.

To a large degree, business success comes from getting valuable advice from others and building good business relationships. Through this event, entrepreneurs can make the connections they need to help transform their start-ups into successful multi-nationals.

It makes perfect sense for this nationally significant event to take place in the Sheffield City Region, which has developed a reputation as a global hub for a range of growing business sectors and is leading the UK in economic growth through exports.”

Brendan Moffett, Director of Marketing Sheffield, said, “Sheffield has an international reputation for advanced manufacturing, creativity and manufacturing innovation. With its entrepreneurial spirit, it is the ideal location for MADE”.

Tickets to the festival are available now from £30. For more information visit www.MADEfestival.com
