The Yorkshire Enterprise Network (YEN) is a network of private and public sector professionals across the Yorkshire region. As an organisation we exist to increase trade potential to the Yorkshire region by using a range of networking, seminars, events and trade delegations which bring people together in order to grow and further relationships and business. YEN provides the means by which its members can promote their own and each others’ businesses for their mutual benefit; to provide business support for each other; to generate business referrals and create new commercial opportunities for each other; and to help each other to develop and grow their individual businesses.
YEN provides a variety of promotional opportunities for the benefit of its members, including networking, forums, presentations, exhibitions and other events at which members can meet or be recommended to potential new associates, suppliers, or customers/clients; plus structured external online and offline marketing activities for ongoing promotion of YEN member-businesses to the public and the regional business community.
YEN is open to reputable and professionally-run businesses whose owners/managers are aiming to develop and grow their business in the Yorkshire area and beyond.
