Events to promote business networking


Networking is an essential part of setting up and running your own business, helping you to find potential customers, partners, suppliers and the chance to meet like-minded entrepreneurs. 

For any business willing to succeed, growth is central to ensuring that the service, brand or product survives and becomes a success.

Business networking is not all about exposure; it can also serve as a very valuable medium to get unbiased help and support from other business owners and entrepreneurs.  

This is especially valuable when your business is still new and you are trying to find the best way to do things.

Network in the Centre

We have a free networking area in the Centre, where you can meet other entrepreneurs, use the free wifi and hold informal business meetings. 

Sometimes, getting out of your businesses premises and into a neutral environment can be helpful, not to mention the opportunity to meet other business owners.

We also run a series of networking events that are a great chance to make essential contacts for your business. There is also a great range of free and highly-subsidised events where you can meet other entrepreneurs and experts, as well as gaining important business insight, advice and knowledge.

Helping you find other small business networks

Finding business networks relevant to your business and customer base can be a very valuable way to get extra insight and contacts. Although wider business networks can be useful to get broad perspective, more specific networks can really narrow down what you need to succeed. On our Business essentials wiki you can find lists of networks in London for entrepreneurs and SMEs.
