Since 1983 we been at the forefront in providing training and support for the creation and development of new businesses. It has been fundamental in enabling over 2,250 businesses to be created, providing in excess of 5000 new jobs.

Start Up Croydon is the accredited Enterprise Agency for Croydon, a member of the National Federation of Enterprise Agencies and one of a network of about 150 around the country.

Start Up Croydon help those wanting to start their own business with both business planning and with the development of basic business skills. Our initial task is to ensure that our clients have a realistic understanding of the way of life, which accompanies self-employment; notably the impact of working 50-60 hours a week can have on personal lives and relationships. We address all the issues through a weekly half-day business seminar and a monthly three-day seminar. The latter seminar covers all aspects of running your own business.


In addition to business training, we also offer one to one business mentoring at which the client can explore any area or subject that is of particular interest or concern to them. Running your own business can be a lonely experience and having somebody to talk to can be invaluable.


The courses together with the one to one mentoring are provided free of charge and are available for as long as clients require.

A separate but related activity is the provision of office space in Croydon, Surrey UK: Park House Business Centre and Weatherill House.
