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…

Join FSB on the last Thursday bi-monthly to network, share, learn and discuss the successes and experiences of being an ethnic minority business owner.

This session is hosted by Jason Roberts, Founder and CEO of Kaleida International. Hailing from Brixton, South London, after 24 years working in the financial services industry in both banking, and sales, Jason was frequently reminded of his diverse identity. From the lack of representation in boardrooms, to being made aware that his 6’ 5” frame was intimidating, he experienced prejudice, bias and discrimination that impacted opportunities.
