Times Enterprise Network: Going for growth


Small and medium sized businesses will drive the country’s economic recovery from the ravages of the coronavirus. Join us on Wednesday, June 23 as we hear from exciting entrepreneurs and leaders of fast-growth private companies about the opportunities and challenges they see in 2021 and beyond.

In May this year The Times and The Sunday Times were delighted to launch The Times Enterprise Network, a new source of advice, inspiration and information for established business leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs in its audience. The Times and The Sunday Times reach a third (2.1 million) of all micro and small business decision makers in the UK. 

We will hear from the government on its efforts to make Britain the best place in the world to start and grow a business, and from leading entrepreneurs about how to scale your business as Britain reopens. The event will include:
