Bike to the Future Wednesday 19th November #gewconnect #gew2014


“To celebrate Global Entrepreneurship week the enterprise club in association with the business & IP centre Leeds presents “Bike to the Future”

The cycling industry is enjoying a high profile with the Tour de France Grand Depart having taken place in Leeds this Summer and Yorkshire is firmly at the forefront of the boom in this industry.
We have invited 3 local entrepreneurs to tell us how they turned their passion for cycling into a business – each of them has their own, very different story to tell and although this event will be of interest to those of you in the cycling industry it should also appeal to anyone who is thinking of turning a hobby or an interest into a business.

 Our speakers are Steve Marsden from od-design http://www.od-designs.co.uk/ , Nathan Hughes from Union of peddaler’s http://unionofpedallers.cc/ and Marek Szczeplek from Aurelius cycleshttp://aureliuscycles.com/ each of them has a bike related business and each of them will tell their own story and answer your questions – it will be a chance for you to learn what’s involved in getting your business on the road, what the pitfalls and rewards of starting your own business are …like the tour de France it will be an evening not to be missed.
