Following Havering being recognised in 2015 as the start-up capital of Britain, it’s now been highlighted by recruitment firm Talentful as the best borough for tech companies to start.

The borough received the accolade due to the high survival rate for start-ups with over nine in ten new tech companies making it past the one year mark. Havering Council will be continuing to offer support to start-ups through its dedicated support programme and by investing in affordable workspace.

The StartUp support programme was launched in July 2016 and is managed by Enterprise Nation, It’s been active in supporting hundreds of ambitious start-ups through delivering workshops, one to one consultations, tender-ready training, a programme of webinars, and access to national campaigns such as facebook’s She Means Business. The programme continues until March 2018 with a dual focus of encouraging people with an idea to start a business, and supporting early stage businesses to grow.
