Our Successes #GrowinLDN
Our companies have expanded their teams, created jobs, launched new products and strengthened their management talent and finances.
We've been speaking to some of London's growing businesses to understand what has helped them succeed. Find out how the Business Growth Programme has supported these SMEs during their growth journey across London.
2017 was a banner year for the companies on the Business Growth Programme:
“Shopair entered the Business Growth Programme looking for structure and to build a foundation. Shopair not only received structure we also secured our first client engagement through a networking event and have been accepted in to the start-up programme by Intesa San Paolo, the biggest bank in Italy. Their focus is Fashion which fits perfectly with Shopair. We would not of had the access to this without the Business Growth Programme”
James Aylwin, Founder & CEO, Shopair
“The Business Growth Programme helped wOndary get to the next stage. The quality of the workshops was truly impressive, and the team is brilliant at organising and coordinating the whole programme and events around London. Living this experience with other businesses was also a great opportunity for peer-to-peer mentoring. I couldn’t recommend it more!”
Claire Trachet, Founder and CEO, wOndary
“London & Partners have been a great help to us as an Australian firm scaling into the UK market. Being part of the Business Growth Programme has personally given me access to some great local mentors (a key to anyone wanting to set up in a new market), access to a range of seminars to fast track the local learning curve, and opened me up to a huge network of peers, experts and even potential customers.”
