Gain the knowledge you need for the lease you want.
The London Growth Hub is offering free Masterclasses and one-to-one mentoring to London-based small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to help them understand commercial leases and negotiate the lease that works best for them. The free Masterclasses are open to
any London-based SME that’s thinking about moving premises or is currently negotiating a new lease on their business or commercial property. This is a great opportunity for Streatham businesses to get involved and grow their business.
The London Growth Hub is part of the London Economic Action Partnership’s (LEAP) work to support enterprise and entrepreneurship in the capital by helping connect London’s entrepreneurs, microbusiness and SMEs with the support that is available to help them start, sustain and grow.
Delivered by Nwes and supported by the Mayor of London the masterclasses will be running in January, February and March 2018; six Masterclasses and six Expert Panel sessions will take place across the capital. In addition, there will be 150 2-hour one-on-one mentoring sessions where entrepreneurs and business owners will be able to ask a property expert specific questions about a lease they are currently negotiating, giving them the legal and financial understanding they need that benefits their business in the optimum way.
Richard Salmon, Regional Director of Nwes, said: “Because of their size, most SMEs have neither the personnel nor the resources to negotiate a lease that works for their business rather than against it. In fact, an unsuitable property or badly negotiated lease can make or break a small- to medium-sized business. Armed with what they learn at a London Growth Hub Masterclass on the other hand, SME owners will know exactly what to expect and what questions to ask when sitting down with a landlord or landlord’s agent”.
To gain access to the Masterclasses, applicants will need to fill out a simple online form at www.growthhub.london/property-advice-service/ providing information about their business. Once registered, you will also gain free access to a range of resources as part of the London Growth Hub portal, and access.
