Young entrepreneurs who bought up every space at a new networking event said the evening was a "huge success". 

Gen-E is a new collaborative group launched by Stokely Howard of video producers Trendy Grandad and Norfolk Chambers of Commerce. 

It held its first event last week having sold out within 72 hours of launching its tickets online. 

More than 65 young entrepreneurs turned out, keen to hear more from their peers. 

Nade Ward, owner of Socker Share, attended the event and said: “Gen-E went from being an event to a community within a matter of minutes.

James Brown, founder of JSB Digital, added: “It was like no other networking event I’ve been to and Loui Blake’s talk was super insightful and full of great takeaways.”
