Who is London Small Business Centre for?

London Small Business Centre is for the person who wants to start their own small business and be their own boss. It’s for the person wanting a career change, the person wanting to take control, chase their dream and make an impact. Formerly known as East London Small Business Centre, London Small Business Centre is for the visionary who doesn’t settle, doesn’t compromise and isn’t afraid to take that leap of faith which is necessary to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
