What we do

Leicester Startups is a community for existing & aspiring entrepreneurs. We organise and promote mentoring, talks, advice, collaboration and workspace offerings with a “give first” ethos. Find out more…

We’re able to do this thanks to the very generous startup community and partner organisations. For 2023, we’re being sponsored by The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, which provides interest-free loans for new startup founders and existing businesses needing investment. Find out more about these and our other partners below…
