MADE Festival named among the world's best

Sheffield's MADE Festival, the UK’s largest celebration of entrepreneurship, has been named among ‘The 10 Best Worldwide Conferences for Entrepreneurs’ on entrepreneur.com.

The article ranks MADE alongside top events such as China Entrepreneurs Forum, TechCrunch: Disrupt New York and Women Entrepreneurs Festival We6.

Author Brian Hughes praised MADE for its ‘range of skills-development master classes’ helping entrepreneurs learn more about subjects including branding, intellectual property, social media, sourcing finance and more.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs from across the UK flocked to Sheffield last year to be inspired by the guidance and experiences of high-profile names such as Paul Lindley from Ella’s Kitchen, Joe McEwan from innocent, Kevin Byrne founder of Checkatrade.com and JB Gill of JLS.

Speaking about the success, Nicki Clark, chief operating officer of event organiser BE Group, said: “2015 was an amazing year for MADE delivering more inspiration and content than ever before.

“It’s tremendous for it to be recognised as one of the top events in the world to attend if you are interested in business and entrepreneurship.”

Another major highlight from MADE Festival is the annual Emerging Entrepreneur award, in partnership with BQ.

BQ will be hosting the BQ National Emerging Entrepreneur Dinner 2016 sponsored by Irwin Mitchell next month celebrating the legacy of MADE.

Bryan Hoare, managing director of BQ, added: “BQ are delighted to support MADE Festival and we are overwhelmed to see it recognised on a global scale.

“This month’s Emerging Entrepreneur dinner in Leeds plays a major role in MADE Festival’s legacy programme helping keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive throughout the year.”
