starting a small business
Hedi, Demi and Melanie & Emile came to London Small Business Centre to start their small business with their big ideas. All of them are now growing their brand from strength to strength but know that they can still contact their business adviser if they need further guidance.
Even once you’ve started up and are growing, our advisers are still at hand if you ever need additional support because we care about building long term relationships to see you through the different stages of your small business.
Our entrepreneurs share their experience so you can get inspired to start your own…
