About Army & Navy Club

The Army & Navy Club is a Private Members Club in the heart of St James's Square - stylish, welcoming & affordable.

The Army & Navy Club is hosting a series of seminars aimed at supporting service leavers, reservists, and other members of the armed forces community on their journey to successful businesses ownership. 

These seminars will provide an excellent opportunity to network with fellow budding entrepreneurs - growing your network of connections, develop and nurture your commercial ideas that will assist in entering the business world, as well as learning about the options and support available for launching and building your new business.

X-Forces will provide an informal ‘business surgery’ at the end of the sessions, for face-to-face advice and guidance.

Tickets are £15 inc VAT per seminar, or if you reserve a ticket for 3 and more seminars, discounted tickets are £10 inc VAT per seminar (please contact us direct to obtain the discount code). 

Book your tickets online or contact Elana Kruger on 020 7827 8031 for further event information .
