Passionate support of businesses: David Robinson of Croydon Business Venture
“The standard of entries last year were testament to those who put a huge amount of energy and commitment into setting up in business.
“As we know from the start-ups in our care at Weatherill House Business Centre, setting up in business is incredibly demanding but it can also be hugely rewarding and Croydon Business Venture is passionate about providing the support new businesses need.”
The awards also have the support of Croydon Council and Croydon Chamber of Commerce.
Councillor Toni Letts, cabinet member for economic development at the London Borough of Croydon, said: “Croydon is a primary business centre in the south east and London’s most ambitious enterprising borough 14,815 firms currently operating here according to the Office of National Statistic.
“Supporting the awards demonstrates Croydon’s commitment to our small business community, which is the backbone of our local economy.
“I do hope that as many businesses as possible will enter.”
