Mayor of London speaking to businesses

New business support service for London

07 October 2019

The Mayor of London and LEAP Chair, Sadiq Khan, today unveiled a new, free-to-access face-to-face business support service for London’s million-plus small businesses as they build their resilience.

Speaking to an audience representing more than 150 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) at City Hall today, the Mayor urged them to take advantage of the help and guidance available from the London Growth Hub.

Launched in 2017 and delivered by LEAP, the Hub brings together the capital’s vast business support offer into a single online resource – and is now being expanded to offer in-person support as well.

From November 1, the new London Growth Hub service will start to operate across four sites:

  • Sussex Innovation Centre (Croydon);
  • Woolwich Library (Greenwich);
  • Huddle (Hammersmith and Fulham);
  • 639 Community Enterprise Hub (Haringey); and
  • Tintagel House (Lambeth).

Further support will be available from four satellite locations at:

  • Wood Green Library (Haringey);
  • Civic Centre (Harrow);
  • 3 Space International Brixton (Lambeth); and
  • Ilford Library (Redbridge).

The Mayor made the announcement as his London Growth Hub business roadshow made its fifth and final stop at City Hall, having engaged with thousands of entrepreneurs and business owners across the capital at events in Havering, Richmond, Barnet and Greenwich over the last few weeks.

The Mayor also thanked the partners joining the London Growth Hub to make the new sites possible – HuddleSussex Innovation CentreThe Office Group & Woolwich Library and the respective boroughs that have supported this initiative.
