The Norfolk Enterprise Festival

Our Mission

Now in its third year, The Norfolk Enterprise Festival remains the only one of its kind in Norfolk. This means we're in a unique position to play host to entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors, students and their families and harness the potential of this incredible community and drive significant yet sustainable growth.

Our mission is simple. To champion Norfolk's entrepreneurial spirit through a festival that ignites and inspires the grass-roots business and enterprise community.


What is the Norfolk Enterprise Festival?

The Norfolk Enterprise Festival (NEF) is a coming together of Norfolk entrepreneurs, SMEs, startups, students, investors and their families to connect, celebrate, learn and discover the hidden entrepreneurial gems our county has to offer.

Throughout the day you can be inspired by talks from business leaders, interactive workshops, expert panels, network with investment angels, and have free one-one business advice sessions

The Norfolk Enterprise Festival is a fun, family-friendly festival, including local food and drink stalls, homegrown theatre and musicians, and creative workshops for children, so you can bring along the whole family!
