Business and enterprise

This section is for anyone who is involved in business - whether you are considering starting a business, want advice on expanding or are interested in finding out about services relevant to your business.

Tower Hamlets has a thriving economy worth £6bn per annum that provides almost 1.4 jobs for every working-age resident of the borough.

The enterprise economy is one of the most significant contributors to this growth and performance.

The borough has experienced enormous economic growth over the last few decades, increasing employment levels by 60 per cent and giving Tower Hamlets the fifth highest job density in London.

The Tower Hamlets enterprise strategy, adopted in 2012, sets out how the council and its partners can encourage and support enterprise and entrepreneurial activity to increase opportunity, prosperity and mobility in Tower Hamlets.
