Surrounded by the entrepreneurial spirit of Bristol, PurpleCeed was founded to support the growing community of people seeking help in starting or growing their own business. We are dedicated to retaining a local focus which is so important to our members, whilst creating a platform for sharing, collaborating and educating on a national level.
Our team of business advisors is hand-picked and vetted by our leadership team to provide support, guidance and advice where and when you need it most.
Everything we learn, we share with you. We are, social media swats, marketing magicians, business brainiacs, website geeks and more. There's nothing we love more than attending talks, research and collating data. But rather than keep this useful information to ourselves we share it with you for the benefit of the community.
…. and we encourage all our members to do the same.
We love to hear from you. Let us know if you are facing a decision or challenge, write an informative unbiased article or send us your thoughts on any service or product that has helped you – or proved a waste of time and resources.
