Brexit? It’s business as usual for StartUpCroydon

Croydon businesses will be given the best possible opportunity to thrive and survive despite the uncertainty caused by the Brexit vote.

The borough’s accredited enterprise agency StartUp Croydon – a Croydon Business Venture has the experience and expertise to guide businesses through the changing economic climate.

It is committed to providing the best possible advice and pointing local businesses in the direction of organisations best helped to provide the support and funding they need to prosper.

“At this stage it is still too early to predict exactly what the long-term or even short-term effects of the vote to leave the European Union will be,” said StartUp Croydon chairman David Robinson.

“However we can provide the assurance and security of having provided advice and support to enable many thousands of businesses to grow and flourish against all kinds of economic backdrops for well over 30 years.

“While the vote to leave the EU has caused concern among the business community, which is understandable because nobody likes uncertainty, Brexit will undoubtedly also generate different opportunities both at home and abroad and we are perfectly placed to help guide businesses through the process.

“What the referendum result does not change is the fact that small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and we will do everything we can to ensure that the transitional period is as smooth as possible.”

StartUp Croydon is a quality assured member of the National Enterprise Network, which has joined the other leading representative groups to offer a consistent line of support to Britain’s small businesses and self-employed people.

Dawn Whiteley, chief executive of National Enterprise Network, said: “Our members have supported many hundreds of thousands of people thinking about or already running a business over the past 30 years.

“They have worked with their clients through good economic times and bad and, whilst this is undoubtedly unchartered water, our memberships is looking to ensure that all clients have the best possible opportunity to survive and thrive.

“The key is to look for those opportunities, wherever they may be, but support and advice will be key to ensuring small businesses can compete on home soil and abroad – irrespective of any Brexit negotiation deals.”
