Application process

In order to apply for any of our business support activities, you will need to first fill in the application form.

If your business is not yet registered and trading, a member of the team will be in touch with you regarding how you can access support and help across London.

If your business is registered but has not been trading for more than 12 months, our “Business Surgery” workshop series (every first Wednesday of a month, 9-1.30pm) is a pre-requisite to any potential further support.

The series comprises of three topics: Funding, Marketing and Sales Strategy. The sessions will be done in cycles with each topic repeated for 4 consecutive months before moving onto the next one:

  • Jan-Apr 2014: Funding
  • May-Aug 2014: Marketing
  • Sep-Dec 2014: Sales Strategy

Workshop presenter Fleur Emery is currently running her second start-up business, and along with talking about each topic, shares her own experiences and what she's learnt.

Until you reach 12 months’ trading, our ability to provide you with bespoke or in-depth business support will be limited and therefore, it is expected that you will complete the cycle of Business Surgery workshops and then progress onto further support.

If your business (or you as a business owner) have been trading for more than 12 months, a member of the business support team will contact you within 5 business days for further information.
