New schemes to boost Wandsworth start-ups

Two new business support programmes have been set up by Wandsworth Council to help grow the borough's food and tech start-ups.

The free Wandsworth DigiTech and Wandsworth Foodies initiatives are being delivered on behalf of the council by CPG Executive Consulting and aim to grow the borough’s digital and food sectors.

Support includes workshops and events, one-to-one coaching with industry experts, showcase events, mentoring, networking opportunities, and free tools and resources to help businesses grow.

Helen Roberts, founder and managing director of CPG Executive Consulting Ltd, said: “The support we provide will give Wandsworth business owners practical tools they can implement in their business, which are essential for growth.”

The council’s business spokesman, Cllr Kim Caddy, added: “We want to ensure new and fledgling businesses get all the help they need to succeed and grow.  

"A flourishing food sector helps create a strong local economy, vibrant town centres and and  employment opportunities.”

The programmes are part of the council’s ‘Your Business Your Growth’ support programme, which is free for Wandsworth business owners.
