Do you want to start your own business but are unsure about where to get advice and support?
Do you have a good idea for a new business but no idea of how to get your idea off the ground? Or have you set up a new business but found it a struggle to find the right premises, advice or finance?
If your answer to any of these is yes, then the London Assembly would like to hear from you.
The Assembly's economic development, culture, sport and tourism committee is investigating the support and advice services available to new businesses in London - not just to get them started but to make sure they are well equipped to survive the recession.
We would like to know if you have had any problems getting advice and support, securing funding, or finding commercial accommodation.
If you would like to get involved, please email your views to Startup@london.gov.uk, or you can write to Natalie Arthur, London Assembly, FREEPOST LON15799, City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London, SE1 2AA.
For more information about the investigation please visit http://www.london.gov.uk/assembly/scrutiny/new-businesses.jsp .
We hope as many small businesses as possible will get involved and I look forward to hearing from you.
