The London Growth Hub has been my key mechanism for supporting enterprise in London. Following the launch of its online portal, a range of support initiatives to help business been put in place across London.
Since November 2019, the London Growth Hub has launched a new business support offer through five physical sites (one at the Trampery, Tottenham) and four satellites (one at Wood Green library). All sites are staffed with business advisors and also run business support workshops, to help businesses grow, increase productivity and become resilient to the potential economic challenges brought by Brexit.
Through the Good Growth Fund, I have allocated £2.9 million to projects in Wood Green and Tottenham in Haringey, to support a range of regeneration initiatives including the creation of new affordable workspace, SME business support and the creation of a dedicated tailoring academy. The Enterprise Enfield ‘Transform and Perform’ project has also received £75k of Good Growth development funding to support female entrepreneurship and economic empowerment.
