From  August 2013, our team of experienced advisors along with our partner organisations have given almost 3500 hours of free, tailored support to the people of Croydon.&nbsp

  • We helped 15 existing businesses employ 29 people, and we have helped 61 entrepreneurs create 58 new businesses. Altogether that’s 90 new jobs!
  • To help our pre-start clients to incorporate their businesses, it took an average of 5.85 hours of support.
  • We went on to give these clients 395 hours of further support once they had started up, that’s 6.7 hours of additional support each, on average.
