Croydon event to inspire entrepreneurs

Budding entrepreneurs in South London have the opportunity to turn their business idea into a reality at a free event being hosted by StartUp Croydon.

The event will encourage and advise those looking to get a business off the ground by showcasing training, mentoring programmes and the funding opportunities available to them.

A series of business support workshops will also take place providing HR support and employment law, social enterprises and marketing your business tips.

Speed networking sessions will also be held throughout the day, providing a chance to make business contacts in an efficient way based on the speed dating concept.

David Robinson, chairman of StartUp Croydon said: “Since its inaugural event in March 2014, the business advice and networking sessions have proved popular with both start-ups and established businesses alike, providing them with opportunities to find out how to set up and run their businesses effectively.

“They also provide an opportunity to meet with key members of StartUp Croydon, and the chance to find about the help we can provide, as well as showcasing the affordable, flexible office space at Weatherill House Business Centre which provide the perfect environment to grow your business.

“The event complements and builds on the regular activities StartUp has provided on a daily basis since the organisation was founded in 1983 as Croydon Business Venture.”

The event is taking place at Weatherill House Business Centre from 11am to 4pm on Wed 12 October.
