Are you a London-based business organisation, trade association or local authority? Do you support businesses that want to make the most of the 2012 Games?

The London Business Network offers support to business associations and local authorities to help share information about the Games with businesses they work with. We provide:

  • A weekly update of new contracts published on CompeteFor, including direct opportunities with public sector buyers such as London 2012, the London Development Agency, Transport for London and local authorities; as well as hundreds of contracts from private sector buyers which form part of their supply chains

  • Up-to-date business information about the progress of London 2012 and CompeteFor including statistics and case studies

  • Support with 2012-related business events through the provision of speakers, joint workshops and support materials

  • Information regarding the wider business opportunities presented by the London 2012 Games such as tourism, international partnering and the Olympic legacy

  • PR support relating to London 2012 business opportunities and CompeteFor. E.g. copy for newsletters, websites, and press releases.

  • Access to government funded business support and other useful partner organisations and schemes.

The services provided by the London Business Network are free of charge. To date, we have helped hundreds of organisations develop or enhance their 2012 programme. Recently the London Business Network:

  • Supported Social Enterprise London’s ‘Winning contracts: What’s tendering all about?’ programme with a series of workshops on London 2012 opportunities and the CompeteFor registration process.

  • Jointly hosted an event with the National Black Women’s Network, to help small businesses tap into government procurement opportunities.

  • Worked with the London Borough of Havering to produce a press release and case study on a local business that recently secured a government contract.
