Inclusive enterprise zone


East London Inclusive Enterprise Zone (ELIEZ)

ELIEZ is an accessible, specially designed, community for entrepreneurs, business leaders and design thinkers who are disabled or whose work focuses on disabled people.

We help accelerate the development of products and services that address unmet needs, from idea stage through to global deployment. We do this through our programmes, delivered by our partners including Plexal, Global Disability Hub and Disability Rights UK.

We’re inviting disruptive startups, innovators and disabled entrepreneurs with ground-breaking ideas and ambitious plans to draw on our ELIEZ network to help market and scale up your business. 

Join ELIEZ Lunch and Learn sessions 

From October 2020, we are inviting start-ups, design thinkers and entrepreneurs with a focus on accessibility, to join us on Zoom for our Lunch and Learn workshops. 

The series will feature a range of subjects such as funding, social media, pitching and app development, delivered  by industry experts.  

The next session will be on Accessible Communications on Thursday 25 February. Book your place on Eventbite.
