On 30 April, the BID held an event that informed Fitzrovia-based small and medium enterprises (SMEs) about the newly revised and Government-backed Growth Accelerator program.
Entrepreneurs heard presentations from the BID, Pro-Actions, Barclays Bank and Business Growth Services on the merits of doing business in Fitzrovia, having a clear business plan, ambitions for growth, marketing strategies and program eligibility over a breakfast sandwich. After the event, feedback was positive, with several voluntary members further exploring their eligibility for the Growth Accelerator with our panel of experts.
