Leading businesses from across the borough will be showcasing their work to encourage other companies to come to the area.

The date for the Harrow – Borough for Business event has been announced and so far more than a dozen businesses are due to appear.

On March 19 Harrow Borough Council will host the event at the Civic Centre, in Station Road, and aims to give support to new and established companies in the borough.

The event is open to any company in Harrow and will be a chance for entrepreneurs to network with others and get advice for their venture.

Cabinet Member for business Cllr Kamaljit Chana said: “Harrow is home to a huge array of successful businesses – we have recently been declared one of the country’s entrepreneurial hotspots – and we want to celebrate that, as well as show businesses what support is on offer.”

The event will also have the final of the councils Business Den competition offering new start-ups the chance to win business advice sessions, mentoring, and marketing, to help get their idea off the ground.
