De Montfort University has played a pivotal role in the city’s business community since it was founded in 1860. The university works alongside companies to provide professional development courses, develop product ideas and identify commercial opportunities. DMU aims to be the business partner of choice for companies looking to develop and grow in Leicestershire. It has been transformed with a £136 million reimagining of the campus that has created a modern, inspiring environment and is a bold statement of confidence in the university and the city.

As a local independent family business, we’re delighted to be involved with the Leicester Business Festival. We strive to nurture local talent with our own team and working with independent business owners running their own pubs. 


Everards are proud to be from Leicestershire, a reason why we have beers dedicated to local landmarks, people or folklore and we aim to promote the region’s strengths whenever possible.  We are currently investing in our new Leicestershire home including new brewery, offices and beer hall and cycle hub and café at Everards Meadows next to Fosse Park.

We look forward to continuing our support for the region through working with other local businesses, supporting business owners and continuing our partnerships with great local attractions such as Leicester Tigers, Leicester Riders and The Curve as well as the Leicester Business Festival.” Stephen Gould, Managing Director
