Our Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) are many of Yorkshire’s most successful entrepreneurs. They are drawn from a variety of industries and have all built, and many are continuing to build, highly successful businesses. They have agreed to give time to deliver Masterclasses, take part in panels and provide mentoring for members of Connect Yorkshire.

Entrepreneurs in Residence.

Is the embodiment of true entrepreneurialism, having driven thebigword from start-up to a company ranked 12th in the world in its sector. His enthusiasm for business, and harnessing and developing the skills of the people who work in it, is now focused on taking thebigword from its current turnover of £50m, with offices in 9 counties into the top 5 language service providers. Larry launched his first business, the Link Up Group recruitment and language services company, in 1980. Born in the depths of recession, the company started with two people, a desk and a telephone and over the next decade, grew to £20 million turnover with more than 100 staff. He subsequently sold the recruitment arm of the business to focus on language services - translation, interpreting, and language technologies.
