The Newhaven Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast Club meets weekly and is an excellent way to meet new customers and suppliers for your business. Although the meetings are structured they are friendly and informal with the emphasis on developing relationships to help each member’s business interests.

Guests and visitors can come and network with our regular Chamber members, you’ll be made very welcome!

This week’s ten minute speaker is Simon Smyth from Ingenio Technologies.

From a shed to 1.1million turnover! Hear this inspiring story this Wednesday.

Come along to the first of our monthly ‘Enterprise Wednesdays’ breakfast meeting specials, held on the third Wednesday of each month. At each of these special meetings we will feature a 20-30 minute invited speaker who will either tell us about their inspirational business journey, share with us their expert knowledge and advice or inform us about the local and regional economic developments.

Since Computer-eyez, now Ingenio Technologies, was founded by chamber members James Batchelor and Simon Smyth in 2005, they have come a long way, from a humble beginning in a shed and to an established successful business in the South East.
