Following its successful launch in 2013, the London Borough of Lambeth, along with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), is holding the biggest business event in the borough. Lambeth Means Business will be held on Tuesday 1st July 2014 at Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton, between 9am and 5pm.

With over 500 local business owners, start-ups, entrepreneurs and managers expected to attend there is a full agenda across the day, bringing innovation, inspiration and information to all visitors.

Angela McKeever, Interim Head of Employment and Enterprise at the London Borough of Lambeth, commented “With over 15,000 businesses in the borough, it is important that we bring our small businesses together to highlight the benefits of being based in Lambeth.

“The council offers a wide range of pro-active support for existing businesses and those wanting to start up on their own and this is a great way for them to see how we and others can assist them on their journey.”

Chandra Sharma, Chairman of the South East London Branch of the FSB added, “We are again proud to be involved with Lambeth in the production of one of the most successful business events in London. The response from last years has been fantastic and our members have constantly been pushing us to organise something for 2014”
