Each year YCF’s annual conference takes a broad theme that gives a variety of speakers the opportunity to set out their own knowledge or experience in different ways. We have talks by industry professionals – investors, analysts, business advisers – interspersed with presentations by entrepreneurs from early stage high growth companies.

The conference includes three sessions, starting with a registration breakfast and closing at mid-afternoon, with plenty of networking time at the breaks.

There is also around a dozen early stage companies featured in our Young Company Showcase brochure, participating in the conference and giving their views on what works and what doesn’t in the present entrepreneurial eco-system.
