We’re celebrating Leeds Digital Festival this April by hosting an all-day event at Futurelabs!

Founders Friday is a tech, creative and digital networking event for founders and would be founders held on the last Friday of every month at Futurelabs.

On the 28 April we are running Founders Friday Extended, a specialist edition version as part of the Leeds Digital Festival.

From 12-midday onwards we will be offering 1-2-1 mentor sessions with some of the top tech Founders, investors and advisors from across the North. You will need to tell us a bit about you and your company so we can match you up to suitable mentors. Once you have signed up as a ‘founder’, we will email you an info request.

In the evening, there will be 5 or 6 interesting digital focused speakers (5 minute quick-fire talk each) and you’ll have the opportunity meet like minded people and decision makers from tech, creative and digital businesses. Founders Friday is an informal meet up for Leeds based, passionate business owners, entrepreneurs & techies. There’s also free beer, popcorn and refreshments.
