Shopping for business advice at Meadowhall

Have your say

Meadowhall Shopping Centre and Sheffield Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to help the next generation of local entrepreneurs.

The two organisations are poised to launch the Meadowhall Business Advisors Panel.

The Panel, comprising some of the region’s top business leaders, will take part in a series of business advice forums, chaired by Meadowhall Centre director Darren Pearce, for budding entrepreneurs and business owners.

Chamber head of business development Amanda Pilgrim, said: “We have a wealth of creativity in the Sheffield City Region and we need to nuture these business ideas to help shape Sheffield’s future. As an organisation delivering business support we were delighted to be asked to work with Meadowhall on this exciting project and cannot wait to hear the amazing business ideas presented by our future business leaders.

“These companies will be Sheffield’s wealth creators and will help our region grow.”

Darren Pearce added: “Sheffield has a strong reputation for attracting and nurturing small to medium-sized businesses – indeed statistics show that a significant percentage of our local economy is boosted by this sector. We look forward to hearing from a range of people over the next month and working together with the panel to support the business ventures of tomorrow.”

Businesses seeking support are being asked to submit their questions, ideas, and pitches to by August 31.
