Doing Business With Big Business is the flagship event from Virgin StartUp that teaches entrepreneurs how to win contracts with big corporates.

It’s the dream for many business owners to see their products stocked on the high-street or their business partnering with household names. The first step to realising this ambition is to understand how procurement works in large organisations and know the best way to approach them.

This event shows what buyers are looking for and how you can demonstrate that you’re ready to start working with them. We grabbed some participants of the last event to ask them a few questions about what they thought of the event:


The format of the event is a half-day workshop ran by procurement professionals from Virgin Atlantic. It goes through the process of what big organisations will be looking to see in your business before they will consider working with you. Following on from the main workshop, there is a meet the buyer session for all participants. This sees buyers from a variety of organisations, including Virgin Trains, John Lewis, Bidfood and more, join roundtable discussions where you can ask specific questions.
