"I started the Guild because I wanted to help create a cohesive community of business owners, sole traders and aspiring entrepreneurs in our city. It it my hope that our members will drive forward economic, civic and social growth in York and beyond."

"For me, the Guild of Entrepreneurs has become a place ideal for networking at an accessible cost for solopreneurs . My business has already found new clients from the Guild. Every meeting we have is completely different, so attending is always worthwhile."
