DABS Festival of Enterprise
On the 13th October 2022, County Durham’s most promising start-ups came together for a day of networking, keynote speakers and first-hand advice at the annual Durham Ambitious Business Start-Ups (DABS) Festival of Enterprise.
This is the 3rd year for the Festival of Enterprise and was attended by more than 100 delegates who descended the Radisson Blu Hotel in Durham.
The full day event, hosted by broadcast journalist Charlie Charlton, focused on the theme of ‘New Start-Ups in a New World’ and what could be done to support leading start-ups pivot their businesses during the new and challenging economic environment.
Delegates also had the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business with four expert speakers including Bradley Jensen, co-founder of Jensen and Jensen and Jeni Smith, founder of NetKno.
Discussions and highlights from the keynote speakers included how networking strategies can help people build long-term relationships, how to overcome imposter syndrome and self-doubt and why culture needs to be at the heart of all decision making.
