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.


What do we do?

Our two key areas for SMEs are start-up and growth services. Through events, workshops and various other activities we ensure our small business owners are fully prepared and confident to start and grow their small business.  As the events and programmes are subsidised there is generally no cost to you.


We have already supported over 13,000 entrepreneurs

Our face-to-face mentoring scheme is delivered by our team of highly skilled business advisors who have worked for leading companies and have first-hand experience in starting their own businesses.


We have given over 70,000 hours of face-to-face mentoring

Providing support to access finance, we work with various partners and sponsors to ensure you have access to the right kind of loan and subsidised programmes to help start and grow your business. Our advisors work with you to secure the most suitable one. To date, we have supported funding for our clients in excess of £15,000,000 loaned.
