StartUp Britain Bus visits Harrow to help boost entrepreneurship

harrow_council_logo2StartUp Britain, a national enterprise campaign, is set to visit Harrow next week to help boost small businesses and budding entrepreneurs in the UK.

The bus will be parked in Harrow Town Centre (St John’s Road by Lloyd’s TSB bank) on Tuesday the 16th July from 9.00AM – 5.00PM

The double decker bus will be filled with start-up experts and business champions ready to deliver free help and support to the growing number of people who are becoming entrepreneurs in the borough.

The bus will also be decked out with laptops and iPad terminals, giveaways, start-up kits and information from experts on all matters including access to finance, selling online, accounting solutions and tips on how to get started.

Small (including micro) and medium sized enterprises account for 99.8 per cent of business in London and nearly 50 per cent (2.3 million) of employment.

The arrival of the bus is just another example of the way the council is supporting local residents wanting to set up their own businesses and helping to boost the local economy.

Harrow Council’s Portfolio Holder for Planning and Regeneration, Councillor Will Stoodley, said: “Supporting our local businesses, town centre and district centres is a top priority for Harrow Council. The StartUp Britain Bus is an invaluable source of information for anyone looking to start a small business or expand their current entrepreneurial ventures within the borough. For anyone looking to get that head-start or invaluable business support, the StartUp Britain Buses are a great opportunity to get expert advice and to speak directly to business champions to get that much needed support and inspiration.”
