Voom Pioneers is a community that’s boosting the UK and Irish economies by creating the opportunities for 100,000 small businesses to grow through digital.
Voom Pioneers provides a place where entrepreneurs, founders and small business managers can help their business grow. The community allows members to make expert connections, find peer-to-peer support and benefit from unique opportunities.
Since 2010 Voom Pioneers has helped small businesses get going and start growing in a community of thousands of mutually supportive members. The community is packed with great advice from successful start-ups and business leaders.
The two areas that we focus on delivering for small businesses through Voom Pioneers are:
- Build connections: Voom Pioneers provides a place for entrepreneurs and small business owners to meet like-minded entrepreneurs and potential business partners - both on the forum and in real life. There are conversations for members to join where they can offer their thoughts and get answers to business questions.
- Get ahead: Voom Pioneers gives members access to business building opportunities that can’t be found elsewhere; from competitions to the Voom Tour. The community also hosts skills workshops and opens doors to the world of local business
