Commercial 1391 are proud to have donated £1000 to local new business support organisation Leicester Startups. We have also committed to deliver another £2000 over the next 3 years.
Commercial 1391 are one of the oldest masonic lodges in Leicester. Originally started by, and to meet the needs of, commercial travellers and businessmen in Leicester over 150 years ago. Over that time our members have largely come from the trades and business communities of Leicester and Leicestershire. Many of those members have set up run and built their own businesses. As such they have a real understanding of how tough but rewarding those early days of any new business are. We were so pleased to be able to give this money to such a worthwhile organisation doing so much for the future of business in Leicestershire.

WM Jason Hall was full of praise for the fantastic work done by Leicester Startups when he visited one of their open evenings recently. "What an amazing initiative for the city. The passion of the organisers and the participants is truly inspirational. Having started my own business I know how hard it can be. Commercial 1391 are very proud to be associated with this organisation."
