We’re here to help you start, sustain and grow your business
2020 has brought unexpected and unprecedented challenges, not least for small and medium sized businesses. Alongside Brexit and other economic challenges, the pandemic has fundamentally changed the business landscape. Every SME has had to adapt to new ways of working, shifting consumer demands, strains on revenue and a new and unknown threat to staff.
To support London’s business community through these turbulent times, we have listened to the capital’s SMEs to ensure our support is in tune with their most pressing needs. We are excited to announce that we have therefore re-launched the London Growth Hub as the London Business Hub, with a refreshed offer of business support programmes delivered both online and through our physical sites.
Our skilled, knowledgeable and approachable team of dedicated advisers have been supporting London’s business community since last year – and they are now here to help you with the challenges and opportunities you face that come with a rapidly changing commercial environment.
Here at London Business Hub, we know that no two businesses are ever the same. And neither are the advice or resources that you need to keep your business moving forward. To make the most of our new website and enjoy a tailored experience, register on the hub and tell us a little about yourself and your business to create your fully customisable dashboard. Here, you’ll find everything you need to get started with making the most out of your account. Whether it’s our huge array of essential resources, our thriving community of business owners, or our carefully-curated list of must-attend events, taking the time to personalise your dashboard will make sure you only see what’s important to you. Think of it as your hub within a hub.
In addition to our brand new website, we have also launched an exciting new range of programmes that offer support across a wide range of issues, including accessing funding and negotiating property agreements. We’ve listed some of our new programmes below but be sure to explore the website for all the support we and our partners have to offer.
