It's the place to be not just to improve your business model,  and overcome areas you’re struggling with, but it’s a great way to get your business idea seen and heard by a large crowd.

Harrow Council supports over 800 start-ups every year and the Business Den competition is another way of helping businesses succeed and prosper.  

Danny and Tenesia from Earth to Earth Organics, 2018 Business Den winner said:

“Winning the Business Den has been the highlight of our year – the amount of opportunities that have come our way really has motivated us and kept us pushing in our ventures. This year we will take the business up a gear and really push our presence more in the local community, in and around London. You should expect to see more of us at markets, fairs and events as we want our customers to build trust in the people behind the brand.  

“If you’re having doubts, shake them off and just do it. The biggest help the competition has provided us with is encouragement to follow our dreams.”
