Donut Time Business Networking - "Donut" knock it until you’ve tried it!

by Anne Solomon, Venture House Business Centre


Venture House Business Centre are facilitating one of the FREE networking sessions at #MicroBizShow on 25 February 2020 at Draycote Hotel. Here's a bit more of what to expect from the infamous "Donut Time".........

Do you have a great business or business idea but are struggling to get it out there? Are you good at what you do but struggle with other things like sales and marketing, networking and negotiating, admin and finances, technology and staffing?

To help you promote your business and find the people you need to help support you, Venture House Business Centre has created Donut Time, a networking event especially for small or new businesses and budding entrepreneurs.

Not just about networking, Donut Time is a friendly and free monthly event held at Venture House in Stratford-upon-Avon. Everyone running a business or thinking of starting one is welcome to come along and:

  • Meet other business owners or start-ups in the same boat as you

  • Pick the brains of our local business advisers on the largely free business support available

  • Listen to our guest speaker’s Top Business Tips of the month

  • Hear a short intro from several other businesses

  • Have the opportunity to promote any events or activities you are involved with

· … oh and devour free donuts and coffee/tea (not compulsory!)

It’s a packed hour and a half and, due to its popularity, booking on Eventbrite is necessary.

And if that isn’t enough, as a “Donutter” (as we like to call you!) you are welcome to stay and try out the hotdesking facilities for free. You just need to bring your laptop or anything else you are working on and we’ll settle you into a desk and leave you to crack on!

To provide you with a Donut Time taster, we shall be running a half hour networking session at the inspiring Micro Business Show on the 25 February 2020. To take advantage of this and the rest of the show (including the other networking tasters, the four knowledge-based seminars and business exhibition) book your place here.

The facilities and business support that the local authority and its partners are providing through Venture House are largely unrivalled across the region. So to find out how your business can benefit, why not:-
