In its second year, Mind of an Entrepreneur (MOAE) is a fast growing and diverse event for start-ups and small to medium sized businesses, a market worth over £10 billion in the UK.

MOAE creates a credible and high profile platform for the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs to share their knowledge, expertise and valuable insight with this audience. Thousands of people visit the event to source information, advice and inspiration and to also find new suppliers to make their business run more efficiently and effectively.

We are offering you the exclusive opportunity to support the MOAE event, which this year will be bigger and better than ever with a potential audience reach of least 12 million via TV, radio, magazine, online and other partnerships. The success of the previous events coupled with the total satisfaction from past sponsors indicates that this year’s event will be a sell-out. We aim to raise more funds for the AA Trust and we enlist your help in doing so.

MOAE will be held on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 October 2006 at Olympia, London and guest speakers will include:
