Kentish Town businesses welcomed by business adviser to The Prime Minister
This week, founders of The Beans Group James and Michael Eder were honoured to be part of a group of Kentish Town businesses invited to Number 10 Downing Street by Daniel Korski, business adviser to The Prime Minister, to discuss what is happening in the area and share their experiences and the challenges they face as growing businesses.
The meeting saw the founding members of Kentish Cluster share thoughts on important issues such as education to ensure businesses have the right people with the right skills to help them grow, as well as immigration and the opportunity to employ highly skilled people from overseas.
Kentish Cluster was set up earlier this year by James, along with other Kentish Town local founding supporters including Zoe Cunningham, MD of Softwire, Titus Sharpe, Founder of MVF Global, Tom Kihl, Co-editor of The Kentishtowner, and Justine Roberts, Founder of Mumsnet.
Kentish Cluster provides networking opportunities and cultivates collaboration between local businesses and individuals living in the area. Hosting monthly drinks at local venues, the network has grown to over 650 people signed up and the most recent event seeing 150 people attend.
