London’s Business Advisers

London Business Hub Business Support programme supported by Mayor of London and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Our experienced, knowledgeable and approachable team of dedicated business advisers has been supporting London’s business community for years – giving advice and support when it’s needed most.

More importantly, every member of our team has been in business themselves. They understand the practical and personal challenges that come with being the boss and, what it takes to run a successful business.

With that in mind, the question is: how can our team help you and your business succeed?

First things first – why not book an initial appointment with one of our advisers? You will be allocated an adviser based on availability. Together with your adviser, we can get a sense of where you are now and where you want to be, how you can achieve your goals and what support you need from our experienced team of advisers to get there.

The London Business Hub Business Support programme is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund’s (ERDF’s) Hub & Spoke project. Only businesses that meet the ERDF eligibility criteria will be able to access 12-hours of bespoke support provided by our team of advisers. Please check here if you’re eligible under this programme.

If your business has not yet started trading, please join our business start-up programme, Start Up Step Up London.

In addition to our core business advisers we have formed a panel of expert advisers who can provide up to three hours of specialist support covering areas such a tax, intellectual property, importing and exporting, corporate and commercial agreements, business travel and employment. Our experts can also support your business to understand and action the necessary changes to accommodate the new rules following the UK’s exit from the European Union (EU). Find out more.

Good news! Our team of Business Advisers have resumed face-to-face meetings in two hubs on selected days, these are:

  • Huddle, in Hammersmith and Fulham (W6 8DA)  – on Monday and Wednesday AM and PM
  • Woolwich Centre Library, in Woolwich (SE18 6HQ) –  on Wednesday AM and PM

Our team of Business Advisers also continue to support businesses remotely too, Monday to Friday. It is up to you to decide what suits you best, whether a face to face appointment or a virtual meeting. We hope to extend the days and locations that our Advisers are available for in-person meetings over the coming months subject to COVID-19 restrictions.
