Derby Hub, a non-profit making business network in Derby, is hosting a launch event with the help of Kavita Oberoi Derby’s own Secret Millionaire.

Craig Barker of Baseline Creative is part of the membership committee “The vision for Derby Hub has always been one of collaboration amongst Derby businesses and nurturing the business talent we have in this great city.”

Derby Hub is a member run, non-profit business network where members meet regularly to assist each other with improving their businesses. “The difference with this group,” says Julian Hall of Beating Anger “is that it is focussed entirely on the membership and not one someone seeking to make a profit from the members.

The vision for Derby Hub grew out of concern for the demise of Business Link as a force for local business advice.  While it remains an online support function there is a gap left in Derby for business advice and education from fellow professionals.  With Derby Hub, as membership grows and the member businesses grow, more and more employment will be generated at a time when job losses are at the top of the headlines.

Derby Hub has been in the planning stage for a few months and is launching in style with guest speaker Kavita Oberoi. Yvonne Gorman of Essential Print Services said of Kavita “not only is she an inspirational figure in Derby’s business community but she is generous with her time to causes that she thinks will benefit local businesses. We feel very privileged to have her addressing our group.”

If you want to hear Kavita speak about how she has overcome adversity and meet other like minded professional business people to network with you must book. Tickets are £20 for non members (£10 for members) and demand is high with limited numbers.

Karen Sheldon of Sheldon Financial Services says “ if you are serious about growing your business, and you want to help other businesses grow then Derby Hub is where you need to be.”

Derby Hub’s launch event is 10th November at Chartwell Group, Pride Park. It starts at 5.30pm prompt and will end at 7.00pm. Ticket price includes wine, soft drinks and light snacks.
