Ipswich Means Business
Great networking events for great local businesses
Ipswich Means Business is a bi-monthly evening networking event, where you have the opportunity to meet up other local business owners, and potentially do business. Run by the team at Grow My Small Business in partnership with Ipswich Town & Waterfront, our networking events are informal and relaxed, with no formal presentations or the requirement to talk in front of the whole group. And there is no membership fee as we want you to come to our events because you want to, and not because you’re obliged to by a long term commitment.
During the networking events everyone moves around so that by the end of the evening everyone gets to meet everyone else – there is time to talk about your business, and many people find these small groups more informative than larger networking groups where you may only get to actually talk to a handful of people. And for fun, we sometimes includes a team activity or a quiz – we share the answers with you at the end of the evening, and throw in the occasional prize for the winning team!
Ipswich Means Business takes place at different venues across Ipswich as part of our commitment to supporting independent businesses in the town. Quite simply, we want to take you to places where you may not have been before, and to introduce you to the best that Ipswich has to offer. This November we are delighted to be at the Quay Place, which has recently opened following an extensive period of restoration.
Ipswich Means Business networking events take place in the evenings, and include a different food option each meeting. Where there is a bar in the venue, this will remain open after the scheduled event allowing time for you to continue networking.
The cost to attend Ipswich Means Business varies, and the fee includes costs for the venue, a light evening buffet, and administration costs to the booking agent, EventBrite.
We are confident that you will enjoy the evening and by the end you will have met every other person attending. New businesses are always welcome, and we hope to see you at a future event.
