The Caerphilly Business Forum is pleased to welcome Gareth Jones of Welsh ICE to the Borough on Tuesday 6th March 2018 at 7.30am at Coleg Gwent, Crosskeys Campus.
This is the ninth in our set of new breakfast seminars where we aim to provide insightful and helpful seminars that can help businesses throughout Caerphilly.
ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Can Caerphilly lead the city region in entrepreneurship
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Gareth has experienced the frustrations of getting start ups moving first hand in Cardiff. Unable to get the support he needed for his startup from traditional business support schemes he saw that it was the community of young entrepreneurs who were most forthcoming in offering each other support. This helped develop his view that there was another way to help generate and support entrepreneurship in a much more sustainable manner than at present.
Gareth is one of a kind, a natural and empathic communicator who will always seek to involve everyone in what he is doing and will go out of his way to help people in his own unconventional manner. Since inception Gareth has worked night and day to bring the ICE vision into reality in his gentle and persuasive manner.
He is engaged with a number of activities outside ICE, including a role on the boards of Cardiff Start, Cardiff University‘s Impact Accelerator, tech start-up Properr, social enterprise RecRock, and has been involved with the boards of the Cardiff Capital Region‘s Innovation Committee, the RSA‘s TaffLab project, Venturefest Wales, and is a Big Ideas Wales Role Model.
Refreshments are included in your registration fee.
There is free parking at the venue.
This event is open to members and non-members of the Forum.
Where: Coleg Gwent, Crosskeys Campus
