Nexus Connect

Hosted by Nexus (University of Leeds)

Nexus Connect is a networking series that helps entrepreneurs and innovators discover new opportunities for collaboration.

Nexus Connect is BACK!

This time Nexus is teaming up with Leeds University Business School (LUBS) to make it better than ever.

Come along to hear Nexus members and LUBS researchers talk about projects that they’d like to collaborate on.

At Nexus Connect you can connect with Nexus members, academic researchers and business leaders from across the region. It’s a great chance to network and brainstorm new ideas over cold beers and nibbles.
