In early November local entrepreneurs from across West Norwood met for the second West Norwood Business Club. The meeting, held at the Kahvah café on Norwood Road, involved lively networking sessions and valuable speeches and advice on the issues facing local business owners.
A wide range of businesses were represented, from industrial services to creative industries. This shows the vibrancy of the business and wider community in West Norwood and underscores the opportunity for Lambeth to promote the area as a business and cultural hub, to help realise the area’s economic potential.
The business club heard from 3 expert speakers, giving valuable and practical advice such as how to secure a business loan during the recession, when many commercial banks are reluctant to provide finance, even to profitable businesses.
