The One Point would like to wish a very Happy 10th Anniversary to For Entrepreneurs Only!
FEO is made up of like-minded local entrepreneurs who collectively turn over £3.5bn each year.
"We employ over 22,000 people and represent successful local businesses of all sectors and sizes. FEO is a Community Interest Company (CIC) based in Hull. Our goal is to help build the local economy by creating a private sector renaissance."
"We help entrepreneurs in Hull & East Yorkshire create wealth and jobs. Through regular events and initiatives, we aim to motivate, educate, inspire and support others. Our members give their time, energy, passion and resources and everyone at FEO works hard to promote Hull and the Humber region as a great place to start up and run a business."
In 2018, The One Point became an FEO Key Partner. This partnership has helped the Community Interest Company (CIC) continue to do the excellent work they do.
Martin Lauer, MD of The One Point, has been an active member of FEO since the company set up 10 years ago, and also helps to deliver the FEO Step Change for Growth programme.
Martin Lauer, Managing Director of The One Point, said:
"FEO is an incredible force for regional growth and the Step Change for Growth Programme has been a cornerstone to our growth here at The One Point over the 6 years since the course was first run by David Hall. I am incredibly proud to be a Key Partner of FEO, as well as now being an official Board Member, and hope to continue to motivate others, like me, to take an active role in its success."
Jan Brumby, Chief Executive of For Entrepreneurs Only, said:
"Martin and his team are a fine example of a local business success story, with great aspiration, ambition and customer focus. They are very supportive of FEO's mission and vision and are based locally, giving something back to the local economy. Their support, along with that of our other valued key partners, helps us to continue the great work our members do in helping entrepreneurs to start, develop and grow their businesses. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their support and involvement."
In December 2019, FEO announced a 5 year plan, which encourages, supports and mentors potential and practicing entrepreneurs on their path to success. To help realise the plan, four additional Directors were appointed to the FEO Board, better representing the diverse range of members and businesses. Included in these four additional Directors is Martin Lauer, Managing Director of The One Point.
Congratulations on turning 10, FEO! We look forward to seeing what the futures holds!
