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.

From September 2020- March 2021, we have helped 30 entrepreneurs accelerate the development of products and services that address unmet needs, from idea stage through to global deployment. We have done this through our programmes, delivered by several partners and collaboraotors, by co-producing workshops and content with Plexal, Barclays Eagle Labs, Loughborough University London, London College of Fashion, Bravand and ICAEW.

The ELIEZ programme has now closed. A huge thank you to all of our members, partners and collaborators for taking part.
