Wandsworth Enterprise Month Launch

March 2019 will be borough business centred!


The Council's flagship business event Wandsworth Enterprise Month will take place from 4th - 29th March across the borough. The event features an exciting programme of seminars, motivational talks, interactive workshops and networking opportunities designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs and established business owners start or grow their business.

It shows the success of the event that this year, instead of being a week long, it has been extended to a month. The majority of events are free to attend, however, some flagship seminars have a nominal booking charge.

Highlights include:

  • Start-Up Wandsworth

  • Women's Enterprise Day

  • Go for Growth: Exploring business opportunities abroad

  • Weave your Web: How to create a Wordpress site

  • How to get media coverage for your business on a budget

  • Press for Success: Meet journalists from the regional and national press and find out how to get your business into their publications.

A full programme which includes fringe events organised by third parties can be viewed on the Wandsworth Enterprise Month website.

There will be many speakers and business experts available to help local businesses develop and reach their goals, including Renee Elliott founder Planet Organic, Trish Halpin, editor of Marie Claire, Jessica Huie MBE, Author and founder, Color Blind Cards and JHPR. More speakers will be announced in the future.

Food enterprise, digital marketing, PR, social media, youth, scale-up and women's enterprise are just a few of the topics the Wandsworth Business Month be covering in 2019. There's something for everyone, regardless of what stage you're at with business.Wandsworth Chamber supports this fully and will be on hand to give advice and assistance.

Spaces are limited and popular events sell out fast, so early booking is advised.
