About In Group

In Group, business networking group, Harrogate

Set up in Harrogate in September 2012 and run by Tara Stagman and Martin Mann, the In Group networking group offers businesses and service providers in the Harrogate area the opportunity to meet one morning a month in a friendly and relaxed setting to help each other to succeed.

The In Group does not make a profit and membership costs are kept low – £10 per meeting  – to fund refreshments, occasional training sessions and social events for members from time to time.

The group is open to men and women who offer products or services to those in the Harrogate area. Each meeting involves open networking, members’ mentions (where members speak out about special offers for the month or key areas they are promoting), a focus in more depth on one or two of our businesses and a slot for visitors to speak. Tea and coffee are provided.

Martin Mann is a highly-rated local IT support expert who specialises in supporting start-up businesses and Tara Stagman is the Finance Director at wine merchants, Ake & Humphris.

To get in touch with Martin or Tara use our contact page.

Visitors are very welcome as we like to find out about other visiting or local Harrogate businesses and members benefit from sharing details about their offers. Visitors pay just £10 and get the opportunity to talk to the group during the meeting about what they do as well as join in with the informal networking before and after the meeting.
