Join hundreds of North East entrepreneurs

Founded in 2002, we’ve grown from 40 founding members to a group made up of hundreds of North East entrepreneurs. The unique nature of our membership, which spans the ages and stages of business life, means that there’s always someone who has been there and done it - someone who has the first-hand practical knowledge you need. View our list of current members. 

All of our members are owner-managers of North East based businesses. By becoming part of our unique community, you will regularly meet with likeminded leaders who can help drive your business forward.

Why join?

Picking up new ideas, finding solutions to business problems and connecting with the right people to help you to reach your goals is what it's all about; and why joining the Entrepreneurs' Forum is one of the best things any business owner can do.

Choose from over 70 events per year

Choose from over 70 events per year

We work hard to make sure we offer an incredible year-round programme of events, with amazing speakers ready to share all that they know and the entrepreneurial lessons they’ve learnt to help you on your journey.

Our events take place across the North East so there’s bound to be something close to you on the horizon. Take a look at what we’ve got coming up via our Events page

Access our exclusive mentoring programme

It’s a fact. Entrepreneurs who have a mentor are more likely to be successful. That’s why we offer a mentoring connection service, tailored for your specific needs.

Whether it’s overcoming a challenge, scaling up, strategic planning or putting the building blocks in place for your future, we’ll connect you with someone who has ‘been there and done it all before’. Alternatively, if you have expertise you’d like to share, we’re always looking for more mentors to add to our growing network.

As a member of the Forum, we will:

• Host regular mentoring sessions where you can book an informal chat with one of our experienced entrepreneurs
• Help you find a mentor with the expertise you need
• Check-in after matching you with a mentor to see if you need any further support

Showcase your business

We champion the entrepreneurial community, shouting about our members’ achievements and helping to spread the word about all the positive things happening in the region.

As a member, we will:

• Share your news and articles on our website and with our 20,000 + social media followers
• Offer you the chance to take part in our big question feature, meet the member video, opinion pieces, or head to head videos
• Create a profile for you on our member directory which will host all your news and articles
• Get in touch regularly to let you know of upcoming promotional opportunities

Want to involve your team?

We think it’s great to bring your senior team to our events and immerse them in the world of entrepreneurial thinking. Depending on your level of membership, you’ll be able to bring up to 2 guests to each of these event types.
