Esquire Self-Made, in association with Mercedes-Benz X-Class, our entrepreneurial summit now in its second year, examines what it takes to start, run and grow a successful business in 2019. Bringing together founders and leaders from a variety of high-profile enterprises and professions, join us for a day of lively keynote talks, panel discussions and unmissable networking opportunities.

Our panellists will be passing on valuable insight and lessons they’ve learned the hard way, from honing your concept and raising initial finance through to marketing and future-proofing your business as it grows. If you’re considering starting your own project or shifting careers, this could be the next step to creating your own story.
