EU Referendum

EU Referendum

On 23rd June the nation heads to the polls to decide whether the United Kingdom should remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union.

As an organisation, the Entrepreneurs' Forum is completely neutral, but following a recent poll of our members the overwhelming consensus was that our region's entrepreneurs planned to vote, but felt they needed to know more about the Prime Minister's deal with Europe and the pros and cons of the debate.

With this in mind, we've pulled together a host of information below from our corporate partners and other sources that may help inform your decision...
