Connect over Coffee

Connect over Coffee offers York businesses the space to network, exchange ideas, find support and discuss business challenges.

The Connect over Coffee team are running twice-monthly business support forum meetings which are free to attend, to help, connect and support York businesses. The meetings will be chaired by Louise Saw, Business Growth Manager at City of York Council.

In these challenging times there are so many obstacles, pressures and questions when it comes to running your business. It’s important to make sure that you’re getting the business support you need.

The Connect over Coffee meetings offer an opportunity to talk about your challenges and successes in an open forum with fellow businesses. In return you’ll get the help and support you need to overcome these challenges.

At our forums we will discuss business support options such as:

  • grants
  • legal advice
  • training
  • HR support

The meetings will also offer you the chance to:

  • hear from guest speakers
  • network via Zoom breakout rooms
  • discuss and address your business challenges

All meetings are currently taking place online via Zoom. Meeting times are approximately 90 minutes. In the future we'll aim to alternate between holding meetings in person and virtually, restrictions allowing.

When you register you'll receive a confirmation email. The Zoom link will be emailed to you the day before the event.

Once the session is over you’ll have the opportunity to contact any of the support specialists to follow up for more in-depth advice and help.
