Welcome to the third edition of Capital magazine, our top business magazine for Dorset, brought to you by the team at the Daily Echo.

We've called it Capital because well, every business needs capital.

Plus, launching a publication for the business world, we wanted to acknowledge Dorset's status as the capital of so many things.

Banking and finance, arts and culture, aerospace and digital technology, education excellence and so much more.

Many companies across the county enjoy a global reputation and do business across the world.

In our latest edition, we speak to the founder of Seventa events, Simon Brooks. 

His company is already gaining a national reputation and will soon be delivering Christmas in Bournemouth.

We also talk to Hall and Woodhouse and look at the vision of the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership, a body that still remains something of a mystery to a lot of people.

If you wish to talk to one of our team about Capital, please get in touch.
