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 thinking 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!
