Business advice

We run a dedicated business portal for Hackney businesses and entrepreneurs which provides access to local business news, events, property searches, support opportunities and forums.

Business toolkit

Our mission is to make Hackney fairer, building a more inclusive and resilient economy, one that nurtures start-up businesses, provides continuity for established businesses, and supports growing and scaling up enterprises.

We have produced a toolkit which sets out our offer to businesses operating in the borough and how you can work with us to make Hackney a fairer place for all.
