It’s a really exciting time for businesses in Croydon, with two major initiatives kicking off. So, we thought we’d tell you about them.

2018 marks the inaugural Croydon Year for Business. Throughout the next 12 months, there will be a series of events promoting Croydon as a business centre, attracting new and growing business. Activities over the coming year will include events, talks and training. Run by Croydon Council, the project aims to promote Croydon as a dynamic centre for business and to encourage existing businesses to increase their knowledge and business know-how. The project will also focus on how businesses can help the local area thrive. For all the information you need on Croydon Means Business, visit, where you’ll find a full calendar of events and how to book them.
