One in 4

Posted: 30 June 2016   Posted in: News

The “ONE” in 4 is new project being piloted by Portobello Business Centre working in partnership with The Rotary Club of Paddington.  In recent years there has been significant growth, not only in the numbers of new businesses starting to trade but also in the number of people who want to set up a business with a social purpose.  Both PBC and Rotary are keen supporters of business that have a strong sense of Social Responsibility and we go out of our way to encourage all business to put something back into their community. So when we came across recent statistics that showed that 1 in 4 of all new businesses starting have a social conscious too we decided we ought to do something to pitch in some resources to help them set up, survive and grow.

So the idea for The “ONE” in 4 programme was born.  The “ONE” in 4 project will look to encourage, select, support and in part fund new business start ups with a social purpose, by providing advice guidance, training and development support.  We are effectively enabling local businesses to  put something back into the their local
Community.  For more detail click here
