What we're about

Are YOU a new or pre-startup business owner in the Solent area? (Portsmouth/Southampton areas?) OR an existing small business owner, becoming frustrated with other groups that charge the earth and give you no useful return on time and money invested?

Other groups feel a bit 'woolly' like Shaun the Sheep?

Want to come and actually find answers to your questions and grow your company - fast?

Want signposting to the right resources and find suppliers? Then you will fit right in with us!

Sole trader? Pre-start up? Small company with 1-3 employees?
Then join us.

Chat, collaborate and help each other out.

Meetup Charges:

From January 2018, we are offering members the option to 'try before you buy'. You will be able to attend 2 paid Meetups but then you will need to subscribe. Meetups need to be paid before you attend, so please go to the calendar, select the date of attendance and follow the link to pay.

Why charge?

This is because we are committed to creating a start-up community where each member receives value.

Can I subscribe for automatic payment?


The £9.99 subscription can be claimed back as an expense for your business, so it really is a no-brainer!

Please ask us if you have any questions.

BUT, it gets better!

We also offer you membership to our VIP Facebook support group, where you can chat with other like-minded business owners, showcase your offers (but not spam!) and have access to resources and information to help you grow your company. The VIP group is for SUBSCRIBERS only and is NOT available until you have signed up to our subscription service.

So for the cost of a couple of large coffees each month from the high street, you can join us!

Corporate Sponsors:

From 2018, we are offering a range of corporate sponsor packages, which we are encouraging larger business partners to take up.

If you are a large corporate organisation in banking, accounting or law (for example), please message us and we will talk to you about how you can become involved.

Why you should attend:

If you are struggling to find help and support and also new business contacts/suppliers, then we are the right business group for you. We help signpost you to resources and support.

If you are thinking of starting a business, have just started a business, are a freelancer or are scaling up to your first or second employee, we are for you!

What you can expect when you get here:

• Sponsor introductions in the room

• Your chance to stand up for 60 seconds (depends on attendee numbers!) and 'pitch'

• Open floor - question and answer session

• Networking

This meetup group is specifically for those owners turning over LESS than £100,000 per annum.

If your turnover is MORE you are welcome to attend, but the level of monthly investment is higher and we will put you on a subscription based membership package of £49 per month for a minimum of 12 months.

Please note that bookings aren't transferable to other Meetups we run, if you choose not to attend after booking, we don't offer refunds as we have limited places that we have to fill each month.
