Who and What

Small companies play a big role in the development of a vibrant business community. That’s why Venture London Business Competition was created in 2008 by four of London’s economic development partners as a way to celebrate and support new businesses that contribute to the entrepreneurial spirit that exists in our city.

Open to planned and new London-based businesses, Venture London provides cash, prizes and support services that can help take a new venture to the next level. It all starts with an online application from which finalists are chosen to present their businesses to a panel of judges. Over $50,000 in cash and prizes are awarded to winners and finalists at the Awards Ceremony in June.

Planning to start a business? Operating for less than 3 years? Past participants tell us that applying to Venture London helped them think critically about their businesses and create a plan for growth that took them far beyond the competition. What are you waiting for? Venture London could be the boost your business needs!

Past Participants

Universitybrand - Finalist Existing Business 2013

We were in our third year of operations when we applied to the Venture London Business Competition. At the time we were in the process of expanding our junk removal and moving business to include cleaning services. The newly re-branded universitybrand would provide full service household and business moving, home and business junk removal, and even home cleaning from top to bottom. It would be a one of a kind offering that no other company currently provided in a single entity.

Although we had a plan for our business, competing in Venture London really forced us to take a look at all
aspects of our company. read more on tumblr
