News: Connect with Gazelles in Rotherham


Connect Gazelles, a unique group that will provide ambitious entrepreneurs with top level mentoring from Yorkshire's leading entrepreneurs, is hosting an event in Rotherham later this month.

"Gazelles" are private sector businesses who are growing rapidly - they can be from any business sector.

Launched by Connect Yorkshire, a not-for-profit company that helps growth businesses in Yorkshire and the Humber get the debt/equity funding and expertise they need, Connect Gazelles will be a members operation and include masterclasses, mentoring, networking opportunities and discussion boards.

As the level of business support provided by the public sector is dramatically reduced, the new group offers members access to expertise, access to other local entrepreneurs and a free strategic review of their current business situation.

Nick Butler, chief executive at Connect Yorkshire, said: "Running a business can be a lonely place and a wrong turn can delay growth by years. Connect Gazelles provides exclusive access to Yorkshire's and the UK's leading entrepreneurs to take advantage of their considerable expertise and experience plus a support group of like-minded individuals.

"It's an inside track for companies to build on their success and prosper."

The next monthly event is on November 23 at award-winning Rotherham company, AESSEAL. Chris Rea OBE, founder and managing director, is one of the region's leading entrepreneurs who has committed to the Gazelles initiative and will become one of the Entrepreneurs in Residence.

AESSEAL specialise in the design and manufacture of mechanical seals, bearing protectors and environmental control systems. Last year was the 28th year of uninterrupted sales and profit growth and AESSEAL reached a landmark by passing the £100m mark for sales. The Templeborough firm also picked up their 12th Queen's Award for Enterprise.

The Connect Gazelles event provides Chris with an opportunity to introduce the next generation at AESSEAL who will tell their story, their plans, show off the business, and share their experiences and their vision for the future.
