About Us

The Entrepreneurs’ Forum brings together like-minded business owners to share experience and help each other grow their companies faster.

Founded in 2002 as a not-for-profit organisation by Sir Peter Vardy and Lorna Moran OBE, we've grown from 40 founding members to hundreds of North East entrepreneurs.

Joining from all sectors, our members regularly meet at inspirational events and through peer-to-peer mentoring to share ideas, make valuable new connections and learn from those who have been there and done it all before.

Helping North East entrepreneurs is our only agenda and, by providing vibrant events, we help entrepreneurs to feel empowered to create and grow their businesses, innovate, take risks, move forward and fulfil their ambitions.

Our Vision:

To provide a vibrant environment where entrepreneurs feel empowered to create and grow their businesses, innovate, take risks and move forward.

Our Mission:

We inspire and support entrepreneurs through innovative programmes and events that are focused, enjoyable and of the highest quality while recognising their achievements through our media work.

Our Strategy

Our strategy is simple and clear: we inspire, support and showcase entrepreneurs through innovative programmes and events that are focused, enjoyable and of the highest quality.
