Event description
Welcome to the StartupSlough Business Forum for start up businesses in the start up capital of the UK and the soft launch of ThisisSlough.- The most successful town in the UK - in the 5th Biggest economy in the world.
We are proud to be working with Slough's premier flexible space provider SPACES at The Porter Building right opposite Slough Train Station.
Since 2010 Slough has grown from having 3,665 businesses to 6,130 in 2018. We expect this figure to have risen to well beyond 6,500 businesses in Slough currently. These numbers are likely to grow further as Crossrail's Elizabethan line to London launches next year.
We want new start up businesses to start, succeed and grow. StartupSlough (SUS) is to help provide a forum of peertopeer and specialist support for those businesses that are prestart, started and under two years of trading. Slough is a very entrepreneurial town where success and failure are a natural part of the ecology,
However, evidence shows that with the right support and guidance risk of failure can be mitigated even at the prestart phase, but especially in the growth phase when it can be as tricky as not growing enough.
Our plan is to run this forum every two weeks and nurture the success and growth of business working with some of the most able practitioners in the area. In time our aim is to establish a successful and sustainable forum reflecting the dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit of the town,
ThisisSlough is designed to platform Slough's success to a local, national and international audience and aims to promote the economic metrics and its outstanding performance that is worthy of international note and sharing.
