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.
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.
