York Business Festival Support for growing small businesses in York

Find out about some of the great support and assistance available for SMEs in York.

IoD North Yorkshire branch is taking part in York Business Festival, a month-long event held in York each year. Organised by the City of York Council, it involves a wide range of organisations from the public and private sectors.

It has five themes, which form part of York's Economic Strategy, and the IoD will be leading on "Closer to home – an economy driven by good business".
